flash video does not reload in firefox and ie
I go to this web page with the dreamhost embedded flv. The streaming video works fine, but if I navigate away from the page and then return to it in the same browser session, the page displays a blank white box in place of the flv. In FF, I can clear cache and get it back. IE doesn't like to clear the cache even when asked to explicitly from the tool menu. In IE, if I turn off cookies and cache, I can get the behavior I want. I am not explicitly setting cookies or trying to control cache explicitly in the web page.

I cannot reproduce any of this behavior with Safari or SeaMonkey.

Does anyone know what controls this behavior? Is there a way to prevent the user from experiencing this?
