    I am using Lightwindow to play video. Works properly in Firefox, Safari, Opera and Chrome.

    Check out

    Does not work with any flavor of IE (SURPRISE!!!). Dark background appears, as expected, but no video loads. IE provides the following error message:

    Message: Invalid argument.
    Line: 1596
    Char: 9
    Code: 0
    URI: … ototype.js

    I am an implementer, not a coder, so this helps me not. But, it might help you…

    Any really smart people who know this code and are willing to assist? I have posted this request to the author, but this is no longer something he supports, I think.

    Looks like this page is so simple you could easily experiment with different lightbox plugins to find one that works better for you. I’m a jQuery guy and I like this one: … box-clone/


    Thanks, Chris. I was perusing the code for the thousandth time and noticed I had not declared a doctype. Fixed that and – voila – now it works. Love your work!


    I’m having this same issue. I declared the transitional doctype and it moved a few things on my website. I created some fixes for those things and now it works fine in IE, but not firefox. Any fixes? It sends it to the left just a bit instead of making it centered.
