Jw_player_helper, IE8, no full screen

I have some code that displays flash (flv) video. This code runs
perfectly in FireFox, Chrome, and Safari.

IE8 plays the video but I am unable to get IE8 to get the video to go
full screen by pressing the “full screen” button.

I am using jw_player_helper.

Some of the relevant HAML code follows:

  • javascript(‘swfobject.js’)

= player( {:file =>
{:width => ‘100%’} )

Anyone know how to get full screen for a flash video under IE8?
