Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130910160258

Steps to reproduce:

Go to mybpff.com, click on any of the four video links at the top of the page.


Actual results:

Javascript popup window opens, then there is a long delay before the autoplay video begins playing (30, 40, even 60 seconds).


Expected results:

Video should start playing almost immediately when popup window opens.
Works fine with current versions of Chrome and Internet Explorer. It also works fine on an older version of Firefox (v 17) but is consistently very slow with Firefox 23 or 24.

This bug should have actually been fixed on our end about a week ago. I should probably file a bug for it, but the issue was that we had the preload attribute set to "none" which caused a video.load() call to not work.
Yep, indeed fixed on Vimeo's end. Thanks for notifying here.
