This seems to be common problem with IE6 & IE7. All solutions recommend to use wmode but I seen you already use that. Beside this suggestion they often mention SWFObject and link to this article. Have look and tell us if it worked


i have tried this before (quite a while back) yet i found no solution i fear there isnt one for IE 6 there may be for 7 tho as it seems more compliant.


This is a very difficult problem, because you are trying to create transparency on top of a moving image. Remember that text has either a colored background, or has a transparent background that shows what is behind it. But it becomes a huge task of working out for each pixel whether or not it should be test pixels, or part of a movie. This doubles the processor time needed to show the movie.
