The video in the player automatically downloads when you load the page. It should only download on click.

Moving to non-blocker.

It doesn't do it on ubuntu/chrome. Just tested it on demo with the ITravel video. Are you sure that chrome hasn't just cached the video from a previous play?

  • Priority changed from blocker to major

I tried half a dozen, they all do it.

I asked a friend on skype to test, it's fine for them. Can someone explain what might be going on? I've clear cookies etc.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

The video is configured to autoload only the metadata, using the preload="metadata" attribute f the video tag according to the HTML5 spec.

Also this is the only way for the unisubs widget to display before the user having to click.

If some browser does not respect that setting it's a bug of the browser and will probably be fixed in future releases of the browser.
