This is a regular
DIV element that
is placed on top of the video player.
This is achieved by setting the
wmode Flash property to opaque.
After that the Flash object can accept placement and positioning like any other
element including the z-index CSS property.
- Container tag: To make this work reliably across browsers you must install
the player into a
DIVtag container element.
- Browser support: This feature does not work on all Linux distributions and in early versions of Opera.
- Performance: When you force Flash to composite the HTML layers above and below, you are adding additional processor load.
- Fullscreen: Overlaid element won't be seen when the video is played fullscreen.
We have placed a regular
DIV element before the player container. The
styled with CSS.
wmode parameter is provided in the second argument -
Flash configuration - to the Flowplayer installation call.
