    I just installed a fresh new WordPress site with the JW Player. I’m having an issue where the flash player loads but does not show anything but a black box. I’m trying to have it play a mp3. The player is setup with a size of 40×480. I’ve tried many settings and sizes with no luck. Here is an example. I’m using the jwplayer shortcode
    [jwplayer file="http://link.to.file"]

    It looks like there might be a weird character, or a “smart quote”, in your shortcode syntax, because I get this Flash Debug Player Error:

    SecurityError: Error #2147: Forbidden protocol in URL ”http://media.blubrry.com/n3rdg4sm/n3rdg4sm.radiofubar.com/media/Christmasmusic.mp3”.

    As you can see your quotes look like

    ”

    But they need to look like:

    Wow, I didn’t even notice the different quotes used. That was it! Works great now. Thanks!
