Support » Plugin: Responsive Video Light » Video appears in front of menus

  • Resolved kjfrank


    Not sure how you want to handle this, for know I have hardcoded it in the plugin.

    You tube videos require you to pass “wmode=transparent” at the end of your iframe src attribute to prevent the video from appearing on top of other Items (like menus on the page).

    I have modified the plugin code to read:

    <iframe src="'.$video_id
              .'?rel='.$rel_param.'&wmode=transparent" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It may be more appropriate if you update the plugin to be able to pass the wmode in as an param in the shortcode:

    Thanks for the simple straightforward implementation.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I didn’t even know wmode was a supported parameter for youtube! I did some googling to figure out exactly what was happening, and it looks like it somehow affects the z-index of the iframe, which is very odd. The flash wmode parameter doesn’t do that at all!

    Anyway, I just finished rolling out a new version of the plugin that allows you to set a mode option globally as well as per-video with a short tag parameter. Please let me know if there’s anything else that crops up!

    Kind Regards,

    We are trying to add a video to a specific part of our website.
    there you will find on the main page a slide with pics we wanted to add a video instead. It does not have to slide video. We want just one video with the same fullscreen effect. just like the go website. please help us archive this.
