Q: I have a Video Light Box popup which works fine with Chrome but does not popup properly in front of a Flash movie in IE9. I have tried changing the wmode and the z-index for the overlays but nothing seems to work.
I would appreciate a solution as quickly as possible.
A: You should add the following parameters for flash objects:
<PARAM NAME=wmode VALUE=opaque> and WMODE="opaque" for <EMBED>
It allows to overlap a flash movie by other layers.
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" WIDTH="120" HEIGHT="40"> <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="samples/slideshow.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=best> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF> <param name="wmode" value="opaque"> <EMBED src="samples/slideshow.swf" quality=best wmode="opaque" bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH="120" HEIGHT="40" NAME="samples/slideshow" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"> </EMBED> </OBJECT>
I have downloaded a demo of VideoLightBox and created a simple videogallery as a test which plays OK locally. I then made a simple page in iWeb.
I can play my video on the computer but when I view the page on the iPad or iPhone the popup displays but the video does not play and no controls.
I love your product but I am trying to insert it into an existing e-commerce website.
