Video Showcase – Media Player #in #SP2010

SharePoint Media Player 1.1

A web part which places a Windows Media Player object on the page to play audio / video. The web part takes into account the problem of menu’s going behind the Media Player window.

    Great WP, thanks.
    My question is whether it’s possible to set the media player z-index, in other words to send it to the background in order to be able to see fly-outs menus on the page?

      Unfortunately, when I was creating the web part I found that the object did not respond to z-index settings in the CSS I’m afraid.

      If you are using SharePoint 2010, you may want to consider the Site Assets library and the Media Web Part that is supplied with SP2010. This plays videos through Microsoft’s Silverlight plugin.

      Kind Regards

        Actually, there is a way

        but I am not sure how I can set it.

        If you could let me know how – I will update the webpart configuration to include the new setting

        Kind Regards
