Web object refreshes when lightbox is opened & closed
I have a slide with a web object on it, which embeds a Vimeo video. I also have a button that users can click to open additional content over the video via a lightbox. That works well, and the lightboxed slide content appears. However, when the lightbox is closed the web object is refreshed, which restarts the video. Users might be a few minutes into a several-minute presentation so this could be frustrating.
Is this typical behavior? Is there a way to prevent the web object from being refreshed? It's as if the web object is actually removed when the lightbox opens, and then re-displayed when the lightbox is closed. I actually see, behind the lightboxe's translucent black background, that the web object is gone... Maybe web objects are simply incompatible with any sort of layering?
Slide layers aren't an alternative, as the web object is displayed above all other items.
The only thing that comes to mind is to import video files instead of using Vimeo, bypassing the need for a web object. However we have several reasons for using Vimeo versus importing videos (and letting Storyline compressing our files).
