Seekbar option "allow drag after completion" not working properly when video is placed in slide

May 30, 2023

Hello everyone.

We are having an issue with the player seekbar option "allow drag after completion", that doesn't work as expected, for slides that has a video as long as the timeline duration.

Probably the event "media completed" fired at the end of the video playback is resetting the seekbar option or causing some issue.

You can reproduce the issue by placing a short video on a slide (letting the slide timeline duration automatically become as long as the video you placed), then publishing and testing: after the slide with video completes and you jump on the next slide, if you step back to previous slide (the one with the video) you will find the seekbar locked, even if you set "allow drag after completion".

The clue that the "media completed" event is involved in this issue is given by the fact that if you manually shorten the timeline duration by some seconds (so that the video "media completed"  event is not fired) everything will work as it should.

Please note that this is not the same bug noticed here and then fixed in Release Build 3.43.22859.0  (August 18, 2020). 

At the time of this notice, we are using version 3.75.30269.0

Hi Zio,

Happy to help!

Have you tried setting the revisit behavior of your slide in Slide Properties to 'Resume Saved State' so that your slides remember that your learners completed viewing your videos? 

I've attached a sample project file so you can see how using this setting will allow learners to use the seek bar after revisiting a slide with a completed video.
