    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. if("Mouse in screen")
    3. Application.Call("disableWheel")
    4. else
    5. Application.Call("enableWheel")
    6.  
    7.  
    8. //Add this javscript to the web page
    9.

    Great Script!!

    I think though that it is Application.ExternalCall()

    How do you detect when the mouse is on Screen?

    I've detect with making a new Rect(0,0,Screen.width,Screen.height) and then
    use the Contains(Input.mousePosition) but I wonder if there is an easier way...

    Building on Russian Madman code I made this one that you just need to run once, is Javascript only, and does not require any call from the Unity player:

    Code (csharp):
    1. // Call this after your unityObject.embedUnity (...) command
    2. disableBrowserWheelUnity ();
    3.  
    4. // Functions
    5. // Disable wheel function when mouse is over Unity div
    6. function disableBrowserWheelUnity () {
    7.     var myUnity = document.getElementById ( 'unityPlayer' ); // Replace with the id of the div containing your player
    8.     if ( myUnity === undefined || myUnity === null ) {
    9.         // Come back later if embed not ready yet
    10.         setTimeout ( disableBrowserWheelUnity, 2000 );
    11.         return;
    12.     }
    13.     /* Gecko */
    14.     addHandler ( myUnity, 'DOMMouseScroll', wheel );
    15.     /* Opera and IE? Not tested for IE */
    16.     addHandler ( myUnity, 'mousewheel', wheel );
    17. }
    18.  
    19. / /function to add event handler
    20. function addHandler ( object, event, handler, useCapture ) {
    21.     if ( object.addEventListener ) {
    22.         object.addEventListener ( event, handler, useCapture ? useCapture : false );
    23.     } else if ( object.attachEvent ) {
    24.         object.attachEvent ( 'on' + event, handler );
    25.     } else alert ( "Add handler is not supported" );
    26. }
    27.  
    28. // Wheel event handler
    29. function wheel ( event ) {
    30.     var delta; // Scroll direction
    31.     // -1 - scroll down
    32.     // 1  - scroll up
    33.     event = event || window.event;
    34.     // Opera  IE works with property wheelDelta
    35.     if (event.wheelDelta) {
    36.         delta = event.wheelDelta / 120;
    37.         // In value of wheelDelta the same but with opposite sign
    38.         if ( window.opera ) delta = -delta;
    39.         // Gecko uses property detail
    40.     } else if ( event.detail ) {
    41.         delta = -event.detail / 3;
    42.     }
    43.     // Disables processing events
    44.     if ( event.preventDefault ) event.preventDefault ();
    45.     event.returnValue = false;
    46.     return delta;
    47. }
