Adding the following parameter to the EMBED tag works for a few browsers or will (maybe) work in future:

wmode="transparent"

If you specify bgcolor in the html tags embedding the flash movie, this command have no effect.

To make setBackground() have an effect, make sure you remove

<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff>" />

and remove bgcolor="#ffffff" part from:
<embed src="file.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" ...>
