Mathematica Player does not evaluate Initialization cells.  You need to make
sure that any Manipulates are completely self-contained, and do not require
Shift-Enter evaluations in order to work correctly.

The typical way to do this is to add SaveDefinitions->True, which will suck in 
any definitions required to set up the Manipulate into the dynamic evaluation 
that sets up the Manipulate output.  I took your notebook, added 
SaveDefinitions->True to the Manipulate, and ran it through the converter. It 
worked fine for me.  You can find it at...
