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

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 win7 64bit on that site, without extra codecs or 3rd party players.
