[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] swfobject error in IE8 (2 posts)

    I helped a group of my students to place a NextGEN slide show in the header which works fine in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. However, IE8 does not display the show and produces an error message which I pasted below. Another slide show that is on the sidebar is also not displaying in IE8. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Here is the URL to the site:

    Details of the error message from IE8:

    I had the same problem on my site, and fixed it by going from swfobject.js version 2.1 to 2.2. .
    2.2 was already installed in my site at
    but the one that was called on the generated pages was 2.1 from

    Solved it by copying over using this command:
    cp /wp/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/admin/js/swfobject.js /wp/wp-content/plugins/flash-video-player/swfobject.js

    Hope this helps.
