I have a youtube video that I want to place precisely in a specific spot on my web page: right in the middle of the flat screen tv image. I used this code:

<div style="position: absolute; left: 66%; top: 27%; height: 20%; width: 20%">
<iframe id="ytplayer" type="text/html" width="225" height="127" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/bpqE2E2bduk?autoplay=0&origin=http://foundlogic.com"  frameborder="0"/>
</div>

However when I insert the iframe code above for placing the video everything below the video disappears. Attached is the screenshot of what happens.

What I am asking for is the code that places the youtube video right in the center of the flat screen tv image AND at the same time, doen't cause the rest of the page to disappear,

Thank you, but I'm not a coder. Could you please show the entire code with your addition in it?

No, sorry. That didn't change anything. Still can't see the rest of the page.

It's not a problem with your iframe!
If you look at the page source, nor further content is rendered!
Try closing the iframe tag: <iframe></iframe>

Wow! Something so simple. Don't know how I missed that. Anyway, that worked. Thank you!

If you're willing I'm also having a rollover problem as you can see if you hover over the different multicolored buttons below the video. They get stuck on hover. I'll post the link to the question here, if you're interested.

Thanks again, HagayMandel.

Since this question is already closed, you'd probably get better results for you rollover issue if you started a new question.
