"_wmode" property bug (5 posts)

    Quick fix for a small problem that has come up recently for me. I am not sure if it was flash play 10.1 or the most recent Quicktags update, regardless if you are seeing the flash player throw a property cannot be set error on a "_wmode" variable the fix it fairly simple.

    Edit the "vipers-video-quicktags.php" and comment out line #3675, it
    should look like this after your done

    //$embed['flashvars'] = array_merge( array( 'wmode' => 'opaque', 'allowfullscreen' => 'true', 'allowscriptaccess' => 'always' ), $embed['flashvars'] );

    it seems these variables are being sent into the flashvars instead of the SWFobject params, commenting this out seems to have no side effects I has seen thus far.

    hope this helps

    You'll disable fullscreen mode if you do that.

    I'm also can't reproduce that error:

    Hmmm it does not seem to be disabling fullscreen for me. I commented it out on your latest release and I am able to fullscreen vimeo without any issues...


    I noticed you are using youtube, is this possibly a Vimeo only problem?

    You're right. I'm not sure why that line is there. I'm already passing all of those attributes via the SWFObject parameters, I don't need to pass them via the Flashvars too.

    For the record though, I still can't produce the error you're describing, at least in Firefox 4 Beta 2. I tried on both your site and my Vimeo test:

    It is important to be using the Debug Player from Adobe.

    Or you will not see the runtime errors. I am using 10.1.

    Regardless ditching that line fixes it anyways :)
