Youtube embedded video disruption on back button navigation

Post by Cody Blue »

I have a youtube video embedded on a page. The following steps are creating an issue, when tested on an iOS device

1) The click of video opens up youtube window.
2) I then close the window where video is played
3) I navigate to a second page on press of button on above page.
4) I press back button to navigate back to first page (with video)
5) the issue is that the video does not play on click any more.

Could you help?
Regards.

Hello Cody,

Unfortunately our next release is undergoing testing, and this bug won't be fixed in it. We are very sorry for all inconveniences.

Evgene,

Could you clarify concretely when the issue will eventually be fixed?

Please correct me if I am wrong - but this essentially means that the youtube Appery component cannot be used within projects since the back button navigation is such a basic feature.

If the glitch can't be fixed in near time, can you suggest a workaround? Unfortunately, this stalls our ongoing design plan implementation.

Regards.

Hi Cody,

Here is a workaround for you. Please run this code on Page Show event:prevar youtube = Apperyio("youtubeName");
youtube.attr("src", youtube.attr("src"));/preWhere youtubeName is a name of your YouTube component.

Hi Kateryna,

Thanks for your feedback. The issue I had pointed out seems to be resolved now.

However, I notice that on Android device, when the video is played on a page and then the user navigates to a different page, the video keeps on playing (the audio is is still audible). Is there a way to automatically pause/stop the pay when user navigates away from the page?

Regards.
