To repro:
0) make sure that IE is not your default browser
1) visit filmspeed.com using IE
2) click to download the trailer for One Night at McCool's
3) during or after the download, you'll see an IE window pop up with an image of 
text telling you to (1) make IE your default browser, then (2) enjoy the clip

... yet if you click the entry for One Night at McCool's that appears in Windows 
Media Player as a result of the download, it looks fine. (And *man*, does Liv 
Tyler look fine indeed, except for when she's wearing the dominatrix outfit ...) 
No idea why it's telling you to make IE the default browser. 

(Maybe if I temporarily switched IE to be the default browser & replayed, I'd 
discover some extra functionality of the clip, like launching IE windows 
with content while playing?)

Filmspeed should be upgraded to make it browser-neutral.
