[resolved] You Tube Video Knocks Out Mouse Wheel (3 posts)

    When I scroll a page with a YouTube embedded video the mouse scroll wheel stops working. I have to move off the video to then scroll further down the page.

    I know it's only a small thing but I wonder if there's anything to be done to stop that happening?

    This is caused by the Flash plugin and there's nothing you can do about it. Flash is more than just a video player -- it's a complete programming environment. Because of that, when it has the mouse focus it captures *all* key/mouse events and it doesn't bubble them out to the enclosing browser window. As a result it kills scrolling (along with other things).

    I'll leave it then
