    I'm trying to display a flash movie hosted on another website that does not allow embedding of their videos. My method for displaying the movie is by creating a webpage with an iframe tag with the following css:

    Code:
        position:absolute;
        top: -341px;
        left: -30px;
        width:580px;
        height:765px;
    
    Setting a negative top and left margin cuts off the top and left sides of the page where they have a banner and ads. Setting the width to the same size as the movie player.

    I then create another page with an iframe tag refering to the iframe page I previously created. I am able to view the movie in firefox but not in internet explorer as it says "Get Flash Player" even though flash is installed on my computer.

    I'm not sure if there is a work around for this but if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

    Why don't you download the movie? You could host it somewhere other than one of your domains - is there a reason why this really quick solution wouldn't work?

    Well since the videos I want are already on the site this method would be a lot easier than downloading from one site and uploading to another.
