Flash Overlays

How do I layer AddThis and Flash?

Having overlay problems with Flash objects and the AddThis Menu? Flash objects on web pages often cause conflicts with other HTML elements; this is a common problem. To ensure compatibility, be sure to set the "wmode" attribute to "transparent" in all your <embed /> tags.

For example: <embed wmode="transparent" ... />.

If you are using <object /> tags instead (or in addition), add <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> as child elements of all your objects.

How do I layer AddThis and embedded YouTube videos?

YouTube videos that are embedded in iframes often cause conflicts with other HTML elements. To ensure compatibility, be sure to add the "wmode=transparent" argument to all of your YouTube <iframe /> src values.

For example: <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/v/tlCeFOdbmjg?wmode=transparent" ... />.
