IE8 PlayerFramework.mouseEventProxy Error

I am running the examples in IE8 and I've noticed what appears to be an error in the PlayerFramework.mouseEventProxy definition.  Hovering over the player controls at the bottom of the video causes them to appear but flicker every time a "mouseover" event is attempting to be created.

Watching in a JavaScript debug console, it quickly gets filled with...

"Object doesn't support property or method 'createEvent'"

I seem to recall having to use a special case to handle IE8 when attempting to create and dispatch events in JavaScript.

Has anyone else run into this issue and found a suitable workaround they'd like to share?
