mediaelement.js version 2.7.0 kills/lags browser in ie8 not ie9
Replacing old audio player plugin v18.104.22.168 to play mp3s which was causing memory leaks and dead virtual servers.
Continuing existing unresolved thread at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-mediaelementjs-html5-video-audio-player-not-working-in-ie
Works fine in ie9, not in ie8, html5shim or not.
Browser slows and even dies in ie8 as seen here : http://thetwistedgroove.com
Tried alternative http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/degradable-html5-audio-and-video/ which doesn't even work in chrome anymore.
Any advice or tips welcome!
