The question is: Where do i put these lines to stop nivo slider while video is playing and start it again when video stops?

Problem solved...

The code i used is:

jQuery(document).ready(function(){jwplayer().onPlay(function() {jQuery('.nivo-slider').data('nivoslider').stop();});});

jQuery(document).ready(function(){jwplayer().onPause(function() {jQuery('.nivo-slider').data('nivoslider').start();});});

jQuery(document).ready(function(){jwplayer().onIdle(function() {jQuery('.nivo-slider').data('nivoslider').start();});});

In drupal it is:

drupal_add_js("jQuery(document).ready(function(){jwplayer().onPlay(function() {jQuery('.nivo-slider').data('nivoslider').stop();});});", array('type' => 'inline', 'weight' => 101));

drupal_add_js("jQuery(document).ready(function(){jwplayer().onPause(function() {jQuery('.nivo-slider').data('nivoslider').start();});});", array('type' => 'inline', 'weight' => 101));

drupal_add_js("jQuery(document).ready(function(){jwplayer().onIdle(function() {jQuery('.nivo-slider').data('nivoslider').start();});});", array('type' => 'inline', 'weight' => 101));

in theme's template.php
