HTML5 Video in fullscreen slider not playing when scrolling back up
I'm using the Fullscreen Slider addon and when I put a Html5 video into a row to be shown as one of the slides, I noticed the following behaviour. (Checked settings for the video are: Autoplay, Loop and Mute, everything else is unchecked and no placeholder image is added)
The video autoplays when I'm scrolling to this slide, as it is supposed to. That's good. But when I keep scrolling further to other slides, and scroll back up later, back to the video slide, the video is frozen. It shows a still image, no controls and no way to get it back playing, except reloading the page.
This just happens when I implement the video as a normal video element. "Set row video background" doesn't have this bug and keeps playing when you scroll back to it.
My browser is the latest version of firefox.
This is quite a weird and sowewhat annoying behaviour and I hope it is possible to fix it.
sure, do u have a link?
oh nevermind dont need a link
ok go to lay options → fullscreen slider addon
scroll all the way down
check "Autoplay videos when arriving on a slide"
in the next update of that addon i will have this option enabled by default i think
Checking "Autoplay videos when arriving on a slide" solves it, but unfortunately this autoplays all videos, also the ones, that haven't the autoplay function checked. I use some autoplaying silent videos, for decorative purposes and then some Video-Trailer to be played by the visitors.
So overall, this is not such a good solution and I'm not sure enabling "Autoplay videos when arriving on a slide" by default is the best solution, because it might confuse everybody, who purposely disables autoplay in the video settings, and then it still autoplays.
The best would be, if the video could do exactly what is checked in the video settings, when embedding it.
Which it also does, except for the case, of scrolling back up to a 'normally' embedded autoplay video.
Why does the player behave different when using "Set row video background", because there the freeze problem doesn't happen?
(Sorry that I can't send a link just yet, because at the moment I'm developing this site locally.)
I just upgraded to version 5.3.4 of Fullscreen Slider Addon and now it is a total mess. Whereever I use a not-autplaying video (= autoplay unchecked), I can't scroll further then this slide. All slides after this, won't be rechable. I hope you could change this and go back to as it was and hopefully fix the scrolling back up freeze issue.
I also found no way to go back to an older version by myself, since Fullscreen Slider Addon seems to be missing at the new https://www.laykeymanager.com option. Are there any plans to include it too?
can u update again?
mh it doesnt show up on laykeymanager.com u say
i will take a look at it, not sure when i will have time
It's working now
