Browser issue  Possible Bug: Quick Edit and Media


Well-known member
It seems when i try to edit a post with embedded media, (in this case YouTube) the You Tube media will stay on top of the overlay making edits difficult. The only work around i can find is to cancel the edit and scroll down a bit so the media is above the overlay.. See screenshot..

There are like a million bug reports of this and everytime it's fixed it keeps coming back :(

Let me guess, Chrome?

This is a browser bug due it not respecting wmode.

Ensure your BB Code media embed html has it set.

iFrame version:
<iframe class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="640" height="390" src="{$id}?wmode=opaque" frameborder="0"></iframe>
Standard version:
<object width="640" height="385" data="{$id}&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
<param name="movie" value="{$id}&amp;fs=1" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<embed src="{$id}&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" wmode="transparent" width="640" height="385" />
