is there a way to stop a flash video with jQuery??

I'm using a html5 video with flash fallback.. i'm using the video on a modal pop up..

when i try to hide the video, the flash video doesn't stop... so before i hide the mask, i must stop or pause the video, then hide..

i tried various ways, but i can't seem to make them work..

<video id="480p" width="848" height="480" controls="controls" poster="New_Test_Encodes_7-31-11/Test_Encode_Desktop_7-31-11/poster.jpg">
<source src="New_Test_Encodes_7-31-11/Test_Encode_Desktop_7-31-11/Marie_Mcray_Test-H264_480p.mp4" type='video/mp4; codecs="avc1.42E01E, mp4a.40.2"' />
<source src="New_Test_Encodes_7-31-11/Test_Encode_Desktop_7-31-11/Marie_Mcray_Test.ogg" type='video/ogg; codecs="theora, vorbis"' />
<!-- Flash Fallback. Use any flash video player here. Make sure to keep the vjs-flash-fallback class. -->
<object id="480pfallback" class="480p" width="848" height="480" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="flowplayer/flowplayer-3.2.7.swf">
<param name="movie" value="flowplayer/flowplayer-3.2.7.swf" />
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
<param name="flashvars" value='config={"playlist":["New_Test_Encodes_7-31-11/Test_Encode_Desktop_7-31-11/poster.jpg", {"url": "New_Test_Encodes_7-31-11/Test_Encode_Desktop_7-31-11/Marie_Mcray_Test-H264_480p.mp4","autoPlay":false,"autoBuffering":false}]}' />
<!-- Image Fallback. Typically the same as the poster image. -->
<img src="New_Test_Encodes_7-31-11/Test_Encode_Desktop_7-31-11/Marie_McCray_A_O_poster.jpg" width="848" height="480" alt="Poster Image" title="No video playback capabilities." />
