My web server has a SSL security certificate for IIS and it works fine with all the https pages except for one page in which I have embedded a flash object(Video).
Whenever I open that page in IE 8 or 9, I get this message.
Do you want to see the content of webpage that was only delivered securely?
Yes / No
This webpage contains content that will not be delivered using a secure https connection, which could compromise the security of whole webpage.
The funny thing is no matter whether I say Yes or No, it would display the page and play the video as well.
I have checked the security of website directory and this page (including the .swf) and they all are marked correctly with SSL (128 bit encryption).
Any idea what is going on in here. I dont want my clients to get this message everytime they open my website and be scared to enter their information in the subsequent messages. One way, I see that I could do is make this page http instead of https... but
thats not the proper way and I want a good solution to this.
Any help would be appreciated :)

the first link one was little helpful... even though it only pointed towards a possible solution only... the rest all advice towards changing the settings of IE on client side, which obviously is not what we programmers are seeking... few suggested changing
the problematic page to http instead of https, which again as I said in my first post is not what I was looking for
Nevertheless will give the first link solution a shot...

Also refer to the last para of following post:
BTW: when trying to get rid of the mixed secure and insecure content warning, you really have to fix up every URL, even if it doesn't seem like it's being used for anything. Flash content? There's a macromedia.com URL in there in the codebase attribute:
width="600" height="400"> ... </object>
Making it scheme-relative as shown will also prevent warnings.
