I'm guessing the Vimeo control owns the scroll while it has focus.  I suppose you could try to make it so the control exisits but can't acquire or retain focus.

Maybe its not worth it then...Do you have any ideas as far as code goes?

I'm not conversant with the Vimeo control, but it may be possible to turn off that functionality.  Codewise, it might be possible to have a bit of Javascript on the page that moves focus to another control whenever someone mouses-over the Vimeo control, but that's very likely to lead to some odd behavior.

Yeah, i'm not thinking its worth it. Maybe i should focus on a positioning it in a different way (layout wise). The problem is, it's currently in the middle of the page so when users scroll up to the top, it impedes them from progressing through.
