Embedded Flash objects are integral part of the web as we know it. Many forms of Flash objects such as banners, slide shows, preloaders, videos, etc., are there to enrich our online experience, but there’s one common bug that sometimes spoils it. It’s the situation when Flash animation covers some other part of the interface which can be important to the visitor. Here’s the example:
Solution for this problem is simple, you have to set wmode to “transparent” or “opaque” on your Flash embeds. See this example:
<param name=”movie” value=”http://example.com/movie”>
<param name=”wmode” value=”transparent”>
<embed src=”http://example.com/movie” wmode=”transparent”>
This is realizable in all cases, except when Flash Ad is in an iframe. You can read more about this problem on a dedicated site.
