If you include a link to a Flickr video, and click on the image, then the browser window becomes unusable. The lightbox looks wrong (small image in upper-left corner), and you can't click on the close button.

Two examples:

Jake playing with leaves in the stream (video)
Jake playing with leaves in the stream (video)
Splashing in 'bath' (video)
Splashing in 'bath' (video)

This is particularly clumsy in the preview window (you can't access your text anymore). I managed to get my post back by going into the developer tools and remove the lightbox div, but people who don't know how to do that would have to restart their posting.

Thanks!

Should be fixed.  Looks like you were posting them as images.  The lightbox is not compatible with video so if you want to post video you'll need to link to the video page or embed the video:

I put in something to automatically add a link to the caption when the image is a video, but embedding it as video makes it more user friendly and more obvious that it is a video and not an image.

To embed video, go to the flickr page, click on the share => iccon, then click on embed and select medium in the drop down.
