I've noticed that when using the Flash Player API in IE8 (perhaps other browsers as well) with latest version of Flash (11.2), if I call VideoPlayerModule.getVideoPosition() when playback is in the middle of the video, it's returning 0, which isn't what I would expect.
I've tried doing this both before and after stopping playback programmatically (with VideoPlayerModule.stop()) and it seems to have the same result.
Anyone else seeing this? I'd post the example but a) the site hasn't launched yet so I can't and b) I've removed that code to workaround this issue.

And for more information, this was the JS version of the Flash-only Player API and we have this set in the publishing code:
<param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" />

I just successfully made this call in IE9 and IE8 via IE9 developer tools. If possible, it would help to see the code you were using.

Unfortunately the site where this was happening is not yet live and I can't share the link. Also, I've had to remove the call to getVideoPosition() since it was returning 0 on IE8.
If I can get time early next week, I'll try to create an error case for this and post a link, but we're in crunch mode to get the site out the door so I won't have time today.
Thanks for the reply.

How about this...
Let me know if this works for you on IE8: http://solutions.brightcove.com/jstickney/samples/
Play a video and then click one of the thumbs on the right. It should alert the position.
