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?

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.

 http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/video.html#attr-media-preload

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.
