Caveats

Flash (i.e. YouTube videos, etc.) will sit atop the Lightbox Plus Colorbox display no matter what the z-index is. This is an issue with Flash.

See Flash content displays on top of all DHTML layers at Adobe for details.

To work around this issue you will need to add something like the following to your <param /> and <embed></embed> tags:

<object><param name="wmode" value="opaque" /><embed wmode="opaque" [all other embed settings, file src etc.]></embed></object>
