the css menu is not a problem

Mar 24, 2008

Dropdown menu appears behind of a flash video

Hi Toby,
you need to add wmode=transparent to the FLASH VIDEO.

See example here: => Drop down menu seem to be dropping underneath another flash movie. How to fix it?


> Greetings!

top of the drop down menu. The static site can be seen at, while the "new" site with flash is temporarily

Can you help me
fix it so that the drop down appears ON TOP OF instead of behind the flash

I searched your link because I wrestled with this in Firefox 2 and thought it was to be fixed in Firefox 3. But I am using FF3 and still see the problem on your site and mine. WMODE does not seem to cure the menus behind the movies.

So I will show the link to the solution I made for Firefox 2.

This is also working in FF3 and other browsers so it seems to be compatible still.

Please let me know if you have any better ideas. support said...

If you have the video in an iframe,
put the menu inside of another iframe.
It works with f-source menus.
