How can I alter Flash runtime parameters?

Hook into the video_flash_params filter to alter the Flash parameters defined in your page markup. Note: changing allownetworking or allowscriptaccess values may break your video playback experience. Changing window mode may negatively impact your viewers' playback performance.

The embedded Flash file hovers above all other page elements regardless of z-index

Modern versions of the Adobe Flash player separate content into layers handled by specific components of a computer, tablet, or smartphone. This optimization by task allows your viewers to experience smooth video playback using fewer system resources (and battery) than explicit layer controls. See Abode's Flash embed wmode support by browser for more information.

My visitors are unable to view some videos when Flash is not installed (such as iPhone)

Some video publishers restrict video embedding and sharing features. HTML5 video includes a full URI to a video file in the page markup, a feature that causes some concerns among publishers attempting to limit playback locations and video distribution. Restricted embeds are included on the page using Flash markup.
