Bug Description

Mahara 1.8 and master

When you add an avi, wmv or mov file as "Embedded media" and open the configuration pop-up for another block, the video player overlaps and is shown on top of the actual content making it difficult to see.

This was recently fixed for flv in bug #1240307

Adding the parameter wmode="opaque" did not work for embed wmp player

I have added the parameter windowlessVideo="true". It worked for FF but not Chromium.

https://reviews.mahara.org/2751 is the solution for Firefox and IE

For Google Chromium, it is still the browser issue: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=13030

Hi Son,

There are a couple of workarounds mentioned in that Chrome bug post:

https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=13030#c9

https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=13030#c11

Have you tried either of those?

In the IE case it is with YouTube video though.

I actually filed a separate bug report for the YouTube issue as it concerns a different block. Sorry for the confusion.

Hi Aaron

These workaround mentioned in https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=13030#c9 did not work for WMV.

Hi,

This has been tested and it played clearly on:

- Win 7 IE 11
-Win 7 Firefox 32.02
-Win 7 Chrome 37.0.2062.124 m

I didn't have supporting codec to test on:

-Win 7 IE 10

Thanks,
Jinelle
