Hi Experts,

jwplayer won't play vimeo videos without a paid plugin (apparently..correct me if I am wrong please).  Video Lightbox looks nice, plays well, but in IE8 Win 7 64 the close button doesn't work or stop the audio.  Video Light box also goes crazy in safari & chrome when sitting on top of other flash object is the page (with wmode='opaque' set on the underlying object).

So I am getting desperate to find a popup player that looks good and actually works in a page with flash underneath it.  Any suggestions? (or fixes)

Why not use the jwplayer plugin you found? At least this is what I would deffinitely recommend. I know it's a commercial plugin, but at 19€ I wouldn't even think twice to waste hours looking for a way to save these few bucks.

I also couln't find a freely available solution. You can allways implement one yourself using Vimeo API.

fixed it, I used swfObject  for the underlying flash elements to correct it and now works great in all three browsers.  There are some alignment problems that I'll post in a new question.  thanks!
