Have you tried modifying the z-index for the modal popup?
A higher value brings a block (for eaxmple yout popup) to the foreground of blocks with lower values.
If your control has a higher z-index then the flash-player, it will be in front of it.

Thanks for your time, I have tried it. But unfortunately, i can't get desired result. I have give the tab index to my player "-1" and my popup "9999".

Can you suggest some different thing. Thanks for quick response

It's not the "tab index, but the "z-index".

You can set the z-index using the style-attribute or in CSS, for example:

<div style="z-index:100">   </div>

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes,

Thanks, I have solved my issue using your suggested solution wmode="opaque".  I use this directly in embed tag.
