Flash Player & S3 fail in IE
failing due to MaxConnectionsPerServer

 9:20 pm on Jun 12, 2008 (gmt 0)

My company has contracted out a FLV player, it works perfectly fine in all browsers but IE.

In IE, after playing 2 videos from Amazon's S3 you can no longer watch any additional videos until restarting the browser. It seems obvious that the browser is hitting it's MaxConnectionsPerServer, and for whatever reason the flash plugin is not dropping the connections.

The odd thing is that when the flash player is playing files on OUR
servers, no problem occurs. This is true if the player SWF is located on S3 or on our servers.

If you wait for the entire video to download before watching the next video, then no problem occurs. This is strictly a max connections issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Is their a way to tell IE to forcibly drop a connection?

Not sure; have you had any luck with this yet?

mime/type wasn't set in our file meta data, it was being dynamically passed from our server. So when we started using S3 it was using the wrong filetype metadata, we had to go through and manually update each file.
