IE8 and p tags
We discovered recently after upgrading to JWPlayer 6 that the instances of JWPlayer containers that are nested in <p> tags fail to load. As per the problem described in http://support.jwplayer.com/customer/portal/questions/6062595-not-wokring-in-ie8
I debugged the JWPlayer 6 source code after pulling it down from Github and building it. I solved the problem by modifying jwplayer.js. See my commit for details: https://github.com/tyson-benson/jwplayer/commit/c1917975069adba7a94ff9b70268ca0d3c8a0478
I know that the change I made to JWPlayer creates a dependancy on jQuery, which is fine for me, but I know you will want to find another solution so as to avoid creating third party dependancies. Before committing the change to our source code I checked whether or not the code in jQuery for the replaceWith method was simple enough to copy into JWPlayer, but it appears to be a bit more involved than I was hoping.
What I'm trying to say is: JWPlayer team, can you please fix this issue so that we do not have this problem the next time we upgrade JWPlayer.
