Solved: Safari Flash full screen issue

Some common problems when trying to use Flash video embed code (e.g., YouTube like embed code)

1. When using lightbox on the page, it's getting hidden behind the Flash video player

Solution: Add wmode="transparent" to the embed tag

2. On IE7, getting "click to activate"

Solution: Inject the embed code through JavaScript. (Useful libraries: jQuery Flash Plugin, SWFObject)

3. XHTML validation issue

Solution: Use unobtrusive JavaScript embedding. (Useful libraries: jQuery Flash Plugin, SWFObject)

4. On Safari the full screen doesn't work -- even if we add allowfullscreen="true" (this is the issue I faced lately and google wasn't helpful). In all other browsers, it works fine.

Solution: Add type="application/x-shockwave-flash" to the embed tag
