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>
