hey yeah i had that installed and had the problem so i thought id try using the version 10 beta of the plugin the videos play but as soon as my pointer goes over it it dissapears
its i bit of a hassle moving the mouse around flash objects and i cant select fullscreen for videos as that is in the flashbox too?
