I've been playing around with MUSE since November of 2011. I built a site using the software and one extremely annoying/crippling problem for me was that MUSE cannot handle HTML5 VIMEO embed codes when placed inside a Lightbox. The videos will play, but then when you exit the lightbox and go back to the main page, the audio of the video keeps playing in the background and there is no way to stop it from playing unless you close the page.
My solution was to use the old embed codes (pre HTML5) for all of my video embedding but this is actually not a solution as now my site is useless on iOS devices - and lets face it, a lot of web browsing is headed in that direction.
I made a post about this a while back and it was apparently added to the list of things that would get fixed, but I just installed the latest / last beta version of Muse and to my dismay, this problem still presists :/ Unbeleivably dissapointed at this.
Adobe, whats the deal!? Is there any known workaround at this point?
I totally understand that this is the cause of my problem.
The issue is, I personally feel like if I am building a website with a bunch thumbnails for videos, when someone cliks on a thumbnail and the lightbox pops up, the video should begin to automatically play inside of that pop up window. I think its fair to say that this is how most websites with lightboxes behave and thus someone visiting that site expect it to behave.It would be incredibly obnoxious to click a thumnail, and then have to click play again, once the video appears in the lightbox.
I built a site in dreamweaver using this method and it worked quite well.
For me, its a real shame that this problem still has yet to be resolved. My options are either A.) inconvenience everyone who visits my site, or B.) have a website that doesnt properly function on mobile browsers. But its SOOOO close...
Sorry for the confusion, I didn't mean for my response to sound like a final solution. It was intended to be a workaround.
Please also see the following topic where Sam confirms the bug for this issue:
I completely understand. Didn't mean to get defensive. I very much appreciate Adobe's attention to this matter. Is this something that is perhaps on the list of things that will be fixed shortly?
I am building a website where autoplay of videos is the core function of the site so you can imagine my frustration with the sound looping. I have spent hours/ days trying to work arounf this problem. As far as i can tell the issue is strictly with the Lightbox widget. it is not optimised for iframe embeds (which is too bad since iframes is the future of embeding). The good news is (at least with YouTube) there's a workaround. If you use "Use old embed code" and add the autoplay function (twice) it works like a charm here's the link which shows you how http://youtu.be/qxeeGCdcaoY. Hope this helps
