Using IE7 and Firefox I can use Page viewer web parts & Content editor web parts to embed external web sites i.e. Youtube Kart Club Celebrates 50th Anniversary

However with IE8 only the youtube clip is visable. The web parts embedding soundcloud show as white with no content. How do i make the soundcloud clip visable in IE8?

It seems to me that SoundCloud is loading also a Flash using

<embed name="sm2movie" id="sm2movie" src="/player/assets/swf-a0e10171/soundmanager2_flash9.swf" quality="high" allowscriptaccess="always" bgcolor="#ffffff" pluginspage="" title="JS/Flash audio component (SoundManager 2)" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" haspriority="true">

You should try to embed direclty the Flash using a CEWP or via a JS file loaded by the CEWP, as such (all the extra are simply DIVs)

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,40,0"
WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400" id="myMovieName">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="myFlashMovie.swf">
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<EMBED src="/support/flash/ts/documents/myFlashMovie.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400"
NAME="myMovieName" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"
