Wibiya Toolbar Hiding From YouTube Video, Vimeo Or Other Flash Movies

Wibiya Toolbar helped my blog getting more traffic from different locations and it also provided me options for showing lot many things in a single toolbar. It really looks great at bottom of the page but there is a problem with wibiya toolbar as it hides from YouTube videos, Vimeo or any other flash movie. Here is the solution for this problem with wibiya Toolbar.

Problem Scenario:

In case you are having any YouTube video on your blog, then users can not see the part of toolbar which is overlapping the YouTube video or any other flash movie. It may hide the option for Translate, Facebook Fan Page, Twitter Dashboard, RSS Feed, Community Page, Search etc available on Wibiya Toolbar.
