    Video Closes out of full screen and Restarts on Breakpoints

    johns94424267

      Is there a way to not have the video restart on breakpoints? I realize the site is basically reloading for each size, but this is causing a lot of issues on mobile. When someone turns their screen the video stops and has to be restarted. Is there a way to keep the video from restarted once in full screen mode? I know its possible outside of muse, as most sites dont have this problem.

       

      Heres a link to one of pages with a video on it: INNOVENTURE | SLOANimated

       

      i'm using a youtube playlist widget here, but it also happens on pages where I am not using it.

       

      Thanks!

          the (autoplay) options you have in that video are set | controlled by the host and Muse has nothing to do with it

           

          Muse can send the atuostart code to the host server (allows a video to start again after breakpoints) but in this host is blocking it

           

          a breakpoint is seen by the web browser as a new page i.e, resets... there are custom codes that work on some devices but ime for a phone layout your best fix is to straddle the design so that turning a phone on its side does NOT jump to a new breakpoint

            Can you in anyway simplify what you just said?

             

            I have no idea what you're talking about. I have no autoplay options set on the video. It plays when someone hits play. I dont want the video to RESTART, I want it to CONTINUE playing like how every other website in the world works.

             

            I have no idea what you mean by straddle the design.

             

            I also have no idea why this thread was marked answered. My problem is by far not solved.

              web design 1:01 = get it working first then worry about making it pretty

               

              design your layout to limit the number of breakpoints on that page... example = vimeo

              this has a breakpoint at 450... anything above that gets the big vid and anything below gets the other i.e, it straddles so a phone at 350 can be turned on its side (as long as it stays under 450) and still play

               

              if your test devices are bigger than 450 then up the breakpoint to 500 or 650 and retest then if the test works you redesign the page to look good at 320-650 and if you can't get that to work then you need to try alt layouts for small | medium devices i.e, phones get this page and tablets get a different page or drop fluid breakpoints and use a fixed breakpoint but your idea that other vids allow breakpoints to keep playing is wrong... a default youtube page is scaling to fit a browser width but it is not jumping breakpoints

                I have limited my break points. Still no success. Even the example you've show still stops the video on break points.

                 

                Maybe im going about this the wrong way.

                 

                You say its not possible, but I know it has to be because any standard website doesnt stop playing a video when it reaches break points. Go to any video on a youtubes site and scale the broswer. The video never stops playing. Is it because youtube doesnt use breakpoints?

                 

                I just need the video to continue playing despite resizing.
