I don't think the Shark007 codec is the solution, why is my XP working without it ?

You can use an FLV player FLV Player - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com ... You will also need an up to date Macromedia plug-in to watch Flash videos
I'm able to play flv files with WMP and IE9

I should have mentioned that I do have Adobe Flash player which does play FLV and F4V file format...

Which version of flash player are you using ? and which IE9 ? 32 bit or 64bit ? You have to use the 32 bit flash player on 32 bit... if your using ie9 64bit - there is another flash player for that.

FWIW, ie9, 32 bit with 32 bit flash works here on Windows 7 64bit on that site, without extra codecs or 3rd party players.

Hello all, I have found the answer, it's the compatibility view, enable command bar and under PAGE click on compatibility view and video started to play....Thanks all for help...
