I have a page with a tutorial (, but the site layout obscures the flash player, which is too wide. Is there a way to show the flash above the content through the z-order (or something else, lightbox-y)?

No correct solution


You could place IFrame with player- it would be above all page content

I would definitely suggest using a lightbox instead. If you just tried to push it up in the z-index you'll cover navigation which is going to cause you usability issues. I'm a big fan of FancyBox - it's pretty quick-n-easy and it uses jQuery which you are already using. Looking at the download page you can see the details on Inline Content with a Flash example.

Lightbox is a good way. Or you can just add link to the video or optimize player's size.
