    I know it's a weird concept but I have been fed up with trying to make this work. I am developing, from a template off of Template Monster, a website for my sister's boss. It all works out fine and dandy UNTIL I try to view the website in IE9. It works in IE8 and it drives me crazy!!! It seems as though the movie is cut into a 15% viewable sliver BUT if you zoom in it can fix it, unacceptable though.

    If you still have no idea what I mean, you can see it for yourself:

    I have been trying 'googled' fixes here and there and I just can't seem to figure it out. Please, someone lay my torment to rest!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Very Respectfully,
    Shane

    Hi and welcome to TSG, waynebebay:) This looks more like a server problem than IE9, methinks. When I eventually got the right link I noted the exceptionally long time your FlashPlayer .swf (or whatever) took to load - more especially on my 3rd world server. So much time that I cancelled it. Perhaps you might want to reduce the size of your flash file (maybe splitting into interior and exterior images or something like that?) and see if it makes a difference to your IE9 rendering?

    Thank you :)

    As I do see your concerns for loading times and file sizes, the issue will still present itself in this fashion and, even, the team at Template Monster is having a difficult time assisting me. It may be the domain but it seems a bit far fetched to place all blame on the domain when the only issue presented is in IE9. The website is a perfection in IE8 so I can't really say for sure. The site still does work for SOME people in IE9 but doesn't for the majority, it's killing me how no one can figure this out.

    I, personally, think that it's a sizing issue because if you open the website and zoom in you can get it to an appropriate size.
