While playing a video at Google Video in Firefox / Opera, you can only see the first 4 entries from the "more" menu.

E.g.: video.google.com/videoplay?doc ...

You mean this menu :
<< Web Images Video News Maps Gmail more ▼ >> ?

If so, it's fine to me.

I think they have to toggle the vmode in the embed code for the Flash to "transparent", this is a common problem with DHTML/ Flash integration (not sure how crossbrowser that workaround is).

I guess that's because of the flash player. hmm... I think its time to acquire flash or make their own player... ;)

They have to modify the "z-index" of the flash video.

Tom, the z-index is ignored in these cases – this is a browser/ plug-in bug with regards to Flash embedding.

[put at-character here] inferno
They can't acquire flash coz thats macromedia and they can't acquire macromedia coz thats adobe and they can't acquire adobe coz there to expensive. It would be good for a free CS from Googledobe though coz the *free* version of CS£3 would have cost me $2,500 :/

You know what I mean by *free* right?
