Thanks for your message. I know this plugin keeps you busy, and I'm very appreciative of the time you put into it.
It's interesting... if I visit the following page in IE8 (using a nearly-new installation of Windows XP on a virtual machine), it totally works, natively:
I was hoping I could avoid bothering you further with this issue by simply taking all of the essential files from Saleem's version 1.0.1 of the player and overwrite them with the v1.0 files in your plugin. But, no such luck.
If you're saying that your plugin itself won't work in IE8, because it makes use of <audio>, then I'll accept that, and find another player. No hard feelings.
But that's different than saying that the player itself won't work in IE8.
Saleem definitely fixed the player to work in IE8.
I simply wonder if it's fairly easy for you to incorporate this change into your plugin.
Thanks again for your consideration,
