    On our website we have a video on the main page. The video up there now is in SWF format. Due to it being a flash based video, it doesn't display on an iPad. I'm in the process of changing that but have ran into a little snag. I have the video reconvert to support playback on an iPad (H.264) and when I add the code, the video displays, but it doesn't autoplay. The play button has to be pressed for it to work. We need it to autoplay without controls if possible.

    Also, with the new code added, there are a couple additional issues as well:

    On Firefox - If the parameter "wmode=transparent" is added, the video doesn't show up. It just display a black box. The video plays with no issues on IE and Chrome with "wmode=transparent".

    On IE/Chrome - If the parameter "wmode=opaque" is added, the video plays, but the drop down menus on the navigation bar right above the video display behind the video instead of on top of it. The video plays with no issues on Firefox with "wmode=opaque".

    What do I need to do to get the video to play on all browsers with no issue of the drop down menu being hidden behind the video as well as autoplay working on all browsers, including the iPad?

    I would go with HTML5, but you'll only be compatible for the latest browser revisions.
    Still ... it's the best option in my opinion.
    Within the next year, things will be pretty much driving in that direction.
