Okay I have spent almost two hours trying to figure out how to prevent a YouTube Video on my featured video sidebar from standing on top of my PopUp Domination mailing subscribe box that opens as a popup.
I tried tweaking the Z-index of the plug-in .js file itself as well as various configurations of Z-index on the YouTube embed code but nothing I did would let my PopUp Domination stand in front of the embedded YouTube Video.
It looked like this, which prevented someone from filling out the form in the popup:
Finally, I found a solution but it was a pretty ugly solution.
So this is what typical YouTube Embed Code looks like when you copy it from YouTube video directly:
<object width="359" height="227">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/3pIcGU6Ith0&hl=en_US&fs=1">
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/3pIcGU6Ith0&hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="359" height="227">
Well, I learned that the <embed> tag is not exactly very good HTML and that if you redo the code so you are using just an <object> tag like such:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" style="width:360px; height:330px;" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/3pIcGU6Ith0&hl=en_US&fs=1?rel=0">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/3pIcGU6Ith0&hl=en_US&fs=1?rel=0" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>
Plus you have to add the <param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param> and this will cause the YouTube video to work just fine and any popup to take precedence over the YouTube video. This is a bit inconvenient to do every time and I am hoping that I can figure out how to modify the plugin I am using (or have the developer do it) so that I don’t have to constantly rework my YouTube Embed code whenever I want to add a Google YouTube Video to my WordPress Blog.
