Scrolling problem with YouTube video on Google Chrome

Hello,
I've got a peculiar issue in Chrome. On this site:

http://patriciaselbert.com

some of the post have youtube videos embedded. As you scroll down the content is supposed to disappear under the header. On my client's computer everything does this except for the youtube vids. On my computer in Chrome, it behaves as it should.

Anyone else seeing this problem and if so what is causing it? I can't really remedy it if I'm unable to duplicate the problem on my machine.

We all have the current version of Chrome. I'm on a 17" macbook pro, Client is on an iMac and PC laptop. Both are having the scrolling problem.

It's happening in Google Chrome, Firefox 3.6, and IE7 for me. I'm surprised it's working as you expected in any browser.

The wmode parameter needs to be set: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/326196/ff3-windows-css-z-index-problem-with-youtube-player

Thanks Kravimir,
I added the wmode="opacity" to all of the post with videos.
Since it was always showing up fine on my computer, I can't tell if it's worked.
What are you seeing now?

Thanks!

It seems to be fixed now.

Yay!
I think it was more than just the wmode problem, too. My client had embedded the video rather oddly and took out the object widths and heights and replaced them with inline CSS widths and heights to make them fit the page layout.

Thanks!
