Hello,

I have a page and at the top of the page I have embedded a youtube video, simply like the following:

[embed width="500" height="350"]http://youtube.com/link[/embed] 

The issue however is when you put your mouse over the menu, the drop down menu is blocked out by the video.

I’m assuming this is a z-index issue, but not exactly sure where to start looking.

(please see attachment)

It looks like a z-index issue with Flash wmode.
Try adding ?wmode=transparent to the end of the URL:

http://youtube.com/link?wmode=transparent

I have tried that however the video still blocks out the menu.

Could there be a property in the menu css that I could edit?

There could be. If you can share a link that I can see, I could probably be of more help.
