Why does paused video restart upon switching tabs within MyCourse?


It may happen that a paused video resumes from begining instead of maintaing state upon switching tabs.

Probable Causes:

This would occur if video is being embedded in Course using <object> tag.


We recommend the video be embedded using the <video> tag.

Or use a direct link to the video file.

Sample code for using video tag:

<video width="320" height="240" controls="controls">
  <!-- source can be mp4 video or ogg/ogv video -->
  <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
  <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg" />
