    (I've also posted this question on the WordPress forums...)

    My menu is disappearing behind YouTube videos.

    From this thread, I know the problem has to do with wmode="transparent":

    I tried both the filters linked there, and neither worked for me.

    Here's how YouTube is rendered:

    <object width="340" height="250" align="right" hspace="20" vspace="5"><param name="movie" value="" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="340" height="250" src="" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    Both of the filters seem to be looking for something along the lines of </param><embed to find/replace. I don't see </param><embed anywhere in my source code. I tried modifying the filters to look for /><embed , but that didn't work.

    Any suggestions?

    Here's a link to the site:

  2. why not just search for that first embed?


    <embed type="application

    or something.

    then replace it with

    <param name="wmode" value="transparent"><embed type="application

    will be interested to see if you find a solution as i've seen youtube vids cover up things with astronomical zindexes.

    Thanks so much for responding!

    I ended up just using YouTube's old embed code and adding the code in myself. I'm hoping oEmbed will recongnize this problem and come up with a solution eventually.

    Thanks for all your wonderful help. I've learned so much from you -- thank you for sharing.
