Say i have two presentations within a main presentation. One has a video and the other has images,slides and other stuff. After the first presentation with slides it goes to a video presentation. After the video completes it goes to the slides only the video keeps playing or loops. Is there something that needs to be done to stop video from playing. I do have the video placeholder set pud on the video. Thanks

William,

In the base presentation for the video, is it set to PUD? Is the embedded presentation also set to PUD?

I have all that set correctly. I actually did test with my widget and the html5 widget. It seems like both keep playing not matter what. Here is my setup. 

3 presentations. 1 main with 2 other presentations inside using the presentation item. ! presentation has images for testing. The other has one video inside. Once the video runs it never stops looping and will not go back to the images. The only way that seems to fix this is setting a duration. I thought this was an error on my widget but using yours its seems like its an error on the presentation gadget. 

Thanks

William,

If I understand you correctly, it keeps playing the video presentation and never switches back to the next presentation in your playlist (the one with images), do I have that right?

If that is correct, would you please send me a link to the presentation(s)?

I made a presentation with 2 other presentations. One with the html5 video and one with the image widget. Something to just show what its doing. The video plays in a loop over and over again. If the image presentation comes up it will only play once. The only way around it is setting duration. This is also true for the image widget as well. I have to set duration.

William, I'll take a look at this right now and update here in a bit.

William,

I am seeing something that I am investigating.  In the meantime, for the Image embedded presentation, can you go directly to your Storage and retrieve the link for the Image folder, and paste it in for the Image Folder widget configuration?  Let me know if it then plays normally with using PUD.

It still does the same thing. I went ahead and change the video duration to PUD to show that it loops. I also changed videos to kinda give you a quicker look. It doesn't even go to the image widget. My thought is that PUD on the gadget itself isn't working while switching presentations.

William,

I am currently working on replicating this on my end so I can pin down the exact behaviour.  I used your presentation and there were some inconsistencies (but I believe you changed it and saved it while I was testing which could have caused that).  I'll let you know what I find.

I did i changed the duration of the video to PUD. I can change it back to a duration and the image widget will show. I just changed it to a 10 second duration. What I'm getting at is the PUD in the presentation item is not working at all. Thats where I'm getting the bug.

William, you're correct, this is a bug with the embedded presentations and PUD and we are able to reproduce it.

There is a bug logged for this here: https://github.com/Rise-Vision/viewer/issues/43
