    Default Javascript hiding behind youtube vids

    I'm having a weird problem and hoping someone might have some insight, please

    I'm designing a site with a shopping cart (using E-Junkie as the cart) and it also has some YouTube vids.




    The shopping cart functions use Javascript. When I launch the site, the shopping cart window appears *under* my YouTube vids....which is kinda annoying

    I tried using the typical "bring to front" under Objects > Arrange Objects, but this apparently doesn't affect Javascripts or YouTube.

    Is there something I can do to make sure my shopping cart window is always at the front?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Add this parameter tag to your list of flash embed tags

    Code:
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
    Everything will go over top of your videos using this.

    Awesome...thanks for responding so quickly.
    I read it and now realize that maybe this might not work with YouTube's new preferred method of embedding videos.

    For example, if I'm embedding this file, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUcqIUSZv2Q

    I hit share on youtube and I'm told to use this script

    Code:
    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/LUcqIUSZv2Q" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    The old way says to use

    Code:
    <object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/LUcqIUSZv2Q?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/LUcqIUSZv2Q?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
    Until just now, I didn't realize there was an old way and a new (shorter) way to embed YouTube videos.
    Apparently this problem only happens with the new, shorter way....and I can't add those your suggestion using the newer way. Can you think of another way to do it or do you think I'm stuck using the older method?
