Youtube links messing up Dropdown menu

Hi all,

As the title describes, I have a couple of youtube links on a page like this:

<iframe id="first" width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/WU1Agfd_nQw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/19_PLNHd18w" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Open in new window


When I add this to the page though it makes the dropdown menu go to the back and so appears behind the main content area. I don't want to have to change the dropdown menu script so I'm wondering is there is a different format I could use for displaying the utube videos?


Thanks,

D

You can do it the old way:

<object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/embed/WU1Agfd_nQw?version=3&amp;hl=de_DE&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9-W_kAfRLlQ?version=3&amp;hl=de_DE&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Open in new window


This is when you click on embed under the youtube video itself and then select old way of embedding selectbox.
