Slide Layers won't pause when replayed

Apr 01, 2016

I have screens that have multiple slide layers consisting of a single video for the entirety of each layer.  I have noticed that when I go to replay those slide layers again the progress on the seek bar isn't visible unless I hit the play/pause button, then it makes it visible.  However besides that, the play/pause button has no other functionality.  It will not allow you to pause it.

Please let me know if any of you have run into this issue and if you have come up with a solution.

Hi Steve, 

Have you set the slide layers to "allow seeking" as that should separate it from the base slide layer in terms of how the user navigates throughout the slide/course.  You'll also want to ensure that you haven't enabled the video controls as doing so will disassociate the video timeline with the seekbar and therefore they won't be synced to play together.

Thanks Steve for sharing your file. Did this one previously include audio or video? I wonder because I'm still seeing the behavior you mentioned without those elements and after taking a look at it, it seemed similar to the set up here that we did report to our QA Team for additional review.  You can see David's final response here in terms of the workarounds he looked at adding:

I think I may have a resolution, inspired by this article.

I have briefly explained what I've done for my project here.
