mb.YTPlayer for background videos
[resolved] Video freezes (5 posts)

    Let me first say that I really like your plugin!

    The only issue I am experiencing is that the video freezes whenever I click a link to jump to another part of the page. For example, if you were to click the 'blog' link in the navigation bar on my site, the background video freezes.

    The same thing happens when I click the 'toplink' button in the bottom right corner of the page.

    Is there a way to stop the video from freezing?

    Thanks! :-)

    This issue (stop the movie once an href link is pressed) is due to the fact that FF has some problems catching the mouse event if the player is running on background. I can verify if this is still valid for the version 15 of FF; if not I'll remove this behavior.

    I've got the same problem with Google Chrome (freezing after using menu).

    I just update the plug in to version 0.6.1 adding a new settings property to choose if the player should stop or not once a link is clicked on.
    If you encounter problems with Firefox clicking on links this property should be set to true.

    Thanks mate! No more YT branding AND no more freezing when clicking a link.
