Embedded YouTube - Start Time Ignored

Unread post by parpfish II » 2019-07-04, 16:09

Hi,

I use the Portable Version but think this applies to both:

Version: v28.6.0 (2019-07-02)
OS = Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Very simply Pale Moon is ignoring the start time of embedded YouTube videos.

Example: http://www.giantpygmy.net/gp/index.php? ... holy-books

Have tested this against latest versions of Firefox, Opera and Beaker (a chromium fork with DAT protocol abilities) - all of which work perfectly. Only Pale Moon ignores the start time.

Code example:

Code: Select all

Cheers,

P.

Works for me (the video starts playing at 24:10). Did you tried to replicate this in safe mode?

I'm such a dumb ass.

Forgot to test in safe mode --- thanks.

Found the culprit - an addon called: "FlashStopper" which I quite like - simply prevents all autoplays for HTML5 and Flash.
[EDIT] This didn't use to be the case so I wonder what changed - perhaps something on the YouTube end.

I'll search around for a native Pale Moon alternative.

Thanks and apologies for wasting time.

In terms of preventing Auto-Play are there better alternatives to: Autoplay Toggle
https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/autop ... startless/

I quite liked the elegant way FlashStopper did things by simply putting a big play button on the video where clicking it played the vid, whereas AutoPlay Toggle leaves the video in a permanent loading phase and thus a click on the screen followed by another click on the play button is required. Not the end of the world - just wondered if there were better solutions on offer.

Cheers.
