Description

The special character apostrophe is not displaying properly when viewing a FLV file.

Cited example in IE.

<a href="http://mss3.libraries.rutgers.edu/disseminators/flvplayer.php?pid=rutgers-lib:36993&amp;mime=video/x-flv&amp;ds=FLV-1" title="http://mss3.libraries.rutgers.edu/disseminators/flvplayer.php?pid=rutgers-lib:36993&amp;mime=video/x-flv&amp;ds=FLV-1">http://mss3.libraries.rutgers.edu/disseminators/flvplayer.php?pid=rutger...</a>

This example displays as "Alan&amp;apos;s Infinity".

Other character probably cause a similar problem.

I can't reproduce this on Firefox, Chrome, or Safari, but it seems IE (not Firefox) on Windows escapes the &apos; into &amp;apos;. The &apos;, recognized by most modern browsers, is in the object's metadata as such. I don't like this, but I'm going to convert it to a keyboard apostrophe. This should be tested on a similar object on rep-devel.

Tested in IE8 using the video record titled "Jeffery's Video Test Guy Fawkes Day 2009: edited the day after" and had no issues displaying the apostrophe.
