(Keywords: regression)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:40.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/40.0
Build ID: 20150401030204

Steps to reproduce:

1) Go to
2) Click 'Watch the video' on the left side of the page

Actual results:

1) The video played normally
2) The 'Watch Again' icon appears on the video
3) The video begins to play again, automatically, without me clicking anything.
4) When you hover the mouse over the video, the progress bar doesn't appear.
5) Clicking anywhere on the video causes it to start playing again normally, as should happen when clicking the 'Watch Again' icon.

The exact same issue exist for the video on 

Expected results:

The video should have played once and then stop.

Yury, is this video problem a duplicate of the ShumwayCom change you described in bug 1150790 comment 2?

Bug 1150790 has been fixed but I can still reproduce this Amazon video bug in Shumway 0.11.7 redux.

This bug should block M3 Nightly testing because it is a regression.

We need to bisect mozilla-central and then Shumway master to find the regression.
The Amazon video player no longer seems to load the video at all. I see HTTP 204 "No Content" responses in the browser console, which seems surprising:

"Session #1: loading" viewerPlayer.js:105:10
"Session #1: loaded 15122/15122" viewerPlayer.js:127:14
"SWF load time: 0.0060sec" shumway.player.js:25201:0
"Session #1: closed" viewerPlayer.js:121:14
POST [HTTP/1.1 204 No Content 189ms]
Depends on: 1164013
This does not seem to be a Shumway regression. I think Amazon changed their website. Tobias says IMDb is now using HLS video, repacking into MP4 in Flash, so Amazon is probably doing something similar.

Postponing to shumway-later because we are currently focused on Flash ads, not videos.
