Embedded video sometimes plays as it buffers, other times it must load completely
Here is the setup... We have a course with two slides, each with an embedded video:
Slide1 4 minutes (20MB mp4)
Slide 2 8 minutes (40MB mp4)
The videos set to play on-click. I have heavily compressed them to the point they are looking rather grainy. And I have used qt-faststart. The course is hosted on an external LMS.
I encounter a buffering problem when jumping between the two slides. If I play Slide1 first, the video plays fine (you see via the seekbar the video is buffering). While Slide1 is playing, I click on Slide2, the video in Slide1 stops, but you continue to see the Slide1 video is buffering, and you get the spinning "buffering" icon. After 30 seconds or so, Slide2 opens. You can see that via the seekbar that the entire video2 has been buffered and the video plays fine.
This behavior is the same if you play Slide2 and then Slide1; the issue isn't with the video files. The first video that is played in this scenario (Slide 1 or 2) always plays while it is being buffered. The issue is when you try to play a second video.
My question is, is there a way to get the first video to stop buffering and immediately jump to the second video and begin playing while it buffers - instead of having to wait for it to completely buffer?
