Not a Bug Video object and iframe get in the way

    When embedding a video I come across the following a lot and was hoping for some sort of fix if it has not already been improved with 1.1

    In some casses the option to add a video seems impossible, The picture below shows how the position just does not currently suit if a previous video is posted and sits on top of the XF options.

    I have had a look around for a setting to disable the editor popup in places I thought would be the appropriate places but to no avail.

    This makes it difficult to moderate as you sometimes need enough posts so you have room to scroll

    Could both be positioned better ? resized (smaller in height and longer in width) to go just on top of the post new thread toolbar where it will be out of the way perhaps

    Add wmode to the Media BB Code.

    Or try using the iframe version.

    <iframe frameborder="0" width="640" height="360" src="http://www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/{$id}?additionalInfos=0"></iframe>

    A fair while ago you gave me the edit for youtube wich was GREAT and appreciated, though I must admit I just did a copy and past and did not look into it further.

    With Facebook videos I have changed wmode to transparent and also tried iframe but in chrome I still cant post a video after a Facebook one, (Probably serves me right for allowing such a nonsense video option)

    Anyways I will put this down to a chrome bug but with the hope that Kier and Mike might look at some sort of re positioning if chrome continues to not fix the issue.

    This is really down to the exact code you use to embed. There was an oddity with Chrome at one point based on the HTML output, but it was changed a very long time ago (during the beta, for new installs).

    I believe the default FB code is:
    <object width="500" height="280" data="http://www.facebook.com/v/{$id}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.facebook.com/v/{$id}" />
    <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <embed src="http://www.facebook.com/v/{$id}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" wmode="opaque" width="500" height="280" />

    Thanks Mike

    I was under the impression I was up to date but or some reason chrome updates were turned off and I have not updated for aprox 2 months, I have updated and all is now good.
