Presenter '13, Replay and HTML5 Published Content

I am having a bit of difficulty with videos created in Replay playing correctly when the Presenter '13 content they are embedded in is published in HTML5 format in the Chrome browser (basically they do not play). They do correctly play in Internet Explorer 11 however, in IE my Resources tab does not work correctly (this does work in Chrome)

Thanks

Hi, Herman -- Many thanks for reaching out with your question! Have you had an opportunity to review this information on System Requirements for Presenter '13? And if possible, would you be able to share your Presenter package so that I am able to take a closer look and do some testing for you on my end?

Hi Christie,

Thanks for the response.

This intermittent playing of videos seems to be tied to the autoplay of HTML5 content in Chrome. Even when enabled the content sometimes does not autoplay but requires a click to start. Here is what I did as a work-around:

I adjusted each videos's properties to play video when clicked instead of automatically and checked off "Show Video Controls". I then went into "Player" and under "Controls" I de-selected the seekbar and play/pause. 

Even though it does require the user to click to begin each video, it removed the annoying intermittent autoplay issues. This now works correctly in Chrome, IE and Firefox.

Thanks again for the help.
