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

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:

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.

I’m afraid you’re going to have to use with your workaround. This is not a common issue and our player engineers are working on bug fixes for modern browsers and feature requests.
