View Full Version : Spry Tooltip and IE8

01-31-2010, 10:49 AM
I am trying to use a spry tooltip with a .flv file. It works fine in Firefox, Oprah and Chrome. IE 8 refuses to play ball, the file runs without trigger and wont reset.

I've put a basic sample up at http://www.hollybushfm.plus.com/ I would be very gratfull if someone can point me in the right direction.
I am still rather green around the edges, so please be gentle with me;-)

Just in case this helps anyone else,
I've still had no joy sorting this glitch, however i have found an acceptable woraround by disabling auto play and keeping the tooltip open whilst the mouse is over it which allows the clip to be played manualy.

var sprytooltip1 = new Spry.Widget.Tooltip("sprytooltip1", "#sprytrigger1", {hideDelay:1000, useEffect:"fade", closeOnTooltipLeave:true});

Now, does anyone know why (only in ie) all the clips play fine except one which plays at half the speed of the soundtrack. I have recreated the clip and it made no difference ARRGGGGG:confused:
