Once the video is clicked, I need the backgrounds to fade using the jQuery script below. I've got a .click function going for the id="fade" but nothing is fading. I tried the id="player", too. The syntax is probably off but I show no errors. The hover needs to go because the video is now clicked. I'd appreciate the help before I'm bald. Thank you.

Have you tried inserting an alert() in your fade function to see if it ever gets called? I don't work with Flash, but I wouldn't be surprised if Flash objects do not pass clicks through to the browser.

I'm glad you got it sorted. I wouldn't have expected mousedown to work either, frankly. All I knew was that in days gone by, Flash had a history of being grafted onto the screen. I was going to suggest that you dip your toes in the waters of HTML 5 and the <video> tag, again with no actual knowledge or experience on my part. Anyway, I just did a quick search and there is a lot of information about Flash and HTML 5 if you hit a dead end. Good luck!
