Hi Andrew, thanks for your interest.

Yes. And after many cross-browser tests I can say that Flash and
Quicktime plugins are responding very well to resizing in conjunction
with a parent container element.

I know: that player is based on a script intended to work with open
source Red5 streaming server, which lacking support to FLVPlayback has
been object of several threads (like this:
http://osflash.org/pipermail/red5_osflash.org/2006-July/thread.html#4275).
Anyway, for the player placed in Webmultimediale home page
(http://www.webmultimediale.org, "Shannon ultimate machine prototype"
video) I used FLVPlayback with http streaming.  In this case SAMI file
is loaded, parsed and then captioned using cuepoints, according to Tom
Green indications (http://www.tomontheweb2.ca/CaptionVideo/index.cfm).
So, it's my intention to explore further ways to implement closed
captioning in a Flash video.

Thanks for this bug report, even I have reported a similar problem only
pausing and then restarting the movie. I'm going to fix it along next
steps of development.
All further reports and notations are welcome.

Cordially,
Alessio
