Hi. I have a very annoying problem..

I have embedded a media player on my site showing a video stream which is working well..

The only problem is, when you scroll down the page, the video scrolls down with you, covering information and generally giving me a pain in the back side..

Is there any way to resolve this problem??

I used a flash encoder and embedded a flash player on the page and now its all sorted :)

Thanks for any time you spent looking or pondering..

Ok this is all good, except..........
Does anyone know how i could show a Jpeg or a notice in the player to come on when its offline??

At the minute, when the encoders not broadcasting, it continually tries to load.. I think it would be good with a note to say "currently off line" or words to that effect

Thanks once again
