Question about Video Loader Behavior
Hi. I'm hoping a member of the Articulate staff can answer this. Is Presenter's inherent behavior to load a video/MP4/FLV each time a person gets to that specific slide? For example, if I have a preloader in place, will the program reload the video file each time a person gets to that slide, no matter if a preloader loaded the video file previously? I've tested my video both with a preloader and without. Both files seem to behave the same way. Even in the one without a preloader, if I watch the video and then go to a different one, the video doesn't seem to stay in the cache. It doesn't seem to stay loaded. I can go right back to that video after previously leaving it for a different one, and it acts as if I've never viewed it or loaded it. That's odd behavior for a player. Usually if you watch a video once, it stays in the cache and you can view it much faster during the second viewing.
Although, I have noticed that this all works better in IE rather than in Firefox, almost like IE preserves cache for videos better than Firefox does.
