MP4 embedded video - ltxrob - 06 Oct 2020

Quick question..

Is it just me who cant skip around embedded MP4 videos or is it a site thing to limit performance and bandwidth issues?

Just curious...  🤔 🤔

No, it's not just you. I always assumed it was whatever plugin Ra is using. It would be nice to have the ability to jump around as needed

The embedding works by adding HTML5 tags:

Code:
<video width="320" height="240" controls preload=metadata noautoplay>
  <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

I think the key element here is "preload", you can skip if the file is fully loaded. I'm not sure if it's possibe to skip without preloading the whole video.

Here's something for you to test. Have a look at this video:

In my browser (firefox on Linux) I can move the slider anywhere and it will start playing from that time.

in Opera the file played but only at its own rate, no clicking anywhere had any effect on its start stop or jump to position

Tried also in FF, Chrome and Edge... none played it, or even displayed its preview...
FF did moan about to visible file or missing MEME plug in?

Reload fixes it.

Weird... Works for me everywhere and at any slider positions. What am I doing wrong?

This is what I see in FF and tried a CTRL + F5 but does not change anything

Should be SHIFT + Reload (I think it's SHIFT +CTRL + R), not CTRL + F5.


RE: MP4 embedded video - Like Ra - 07 Oct 2020

@ltxrob - have you tried a smartphone? Works fine on my Android. Does not work on my iPhone, but I do not have this app installed: https://www.likera.com/forum/mybb/Thread-Site-rendering-on-Apple-devices?pid=40332#pid40332

ok... tried all the button push combination in FF... still nothing.
