    Baldy, several inmates have PM'd about trouble with smugmug video embeds now autoplaying. Was a sitewide setting changed at Smug or is a problem with the way individual users have things set?

    Trying to manually manipulate the embed code doesn't seem to work.


    :ear

    Thanks,


    MOD EDIT:




    Okay, here's the problem:

    I was clicking on the video and watching it in SmugMug. Then, when the movie was over, I would snag the embed code from the share button on the movie. This will get you a movie that autoplays.

    The way to get a movie that does not autoplay is to:
    Click the thumbnail of the movie you are interested in posting so that it's selected but isn't running.

    Then click on the "share" button at the upper right of the screen.
    [​IMG]

    Select the "Get a Link" menu item.

    Click the "Embedable Link" tab.
    [​IMG]

    Then click the copy button in "Video Embed" next to the video size you want.

    Then just paste the code into your post. ​
    This will get you a video that does not autoplay.

    Mod Edit -- Sorry Evil, I'm talking to the Smuggy Tech Support people and need to edit your post to show them stuff.




    This Video ...

    is using this code. (first < removed on each command so that it shows up.)

    object width="320" height="240">






    This video ...

    <object width="320" height="240">



    autoplay

    I added the "&ap=0" to the gobbletygook.

    Here's the code:

    object width="320" height="240">



    embed src="http://cdn.smugmug.com/ria/ShizVidz-2010010605.swf" flashvars="s=aT03NjExMDY0Mzgmaz1yNlZ2UCZhPTM1MTkxMzhfWE5FS1MmdT1FdmlsQ2xvd24=&ap=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="320" height="240">/object>

    I took out what looked like the extra "=" at the end of the gobbltygook and addad the "&ap=0" like this.

    Hi Rich! :wave

    Thanks for helping out.

    It seems that when I get my code from the share button on Smuggy I get different gobbltygook than you:

    Yours:

    flashvars="s=ZT0xJmk9NTczNTU3MjAzJms9QUh2bzYmYT04Njc5NzY4X0hqa0hFJnU9UHV0dHM=&ap=0"

    Barbs:

    flashvars="s=ZT0xJmk9NTczNTU3MjAzJms9QUh2bzYmYT04Njc5NzY4X0hq a0hFJnU9UHV0dHM="

    Mine:

    flashvars="s=aT01NzM1NTcyMDMmaz1BSHZvNiZhPTg2Nzk3NjhfSGprSEUm dT1QdXR0cw=="


    I also noted I don't get a Smuggy logo to the right above the control bar and the clips that are working properly do.

    Just mentioning it.

    Hi Rich,

    I tried posting without a pre-view (I don't think I did that before anyway) and still have the same problem.

    Here it is:

    <object width="320" height="180">



    <embed src="http://cdn.smugmug.com/ria/ShizVidz-2010010605.swf" flashvars="s=aT01NzM1NTcyMDMmaz1BSHZvNiZhPTg2Nzk3NjhfSGprSEUmdT1QdXR0cw" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="320" height="180"></object>


    Here's the code with leading < removed prior to posting:

    object width=320 height=180>

    param name="movie" value="http://cdn.smugmug.com/ria/ShizVidz-2010010605.swf" />

    param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />

    param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />

    param name="flashVars" value="s=aT01NzM1NTcyMDMmaz1BSHZvNiZhPTg2Nzk3NjhfSGprSEUmdT1QdXR0cw==" />

    embed src="http://cdn.smugmug.com/ria/ShizVidz-2010010605.swf" flashVars="s=aT01NzM1NTcyMDMmaz1BSHZvNiZhPTg2Nzk3NjhfSGprSEUmdT1QdXR0cw==" width=320 height=180 type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always">

    /embed>

    /object>

    <object width="320" height="180"></object>

    Here's what the code looks like after posting:

    object width="320" height="180">

    embed src="http://cdn.smugmug.com/ria/ShizVidz-2010010605.swf" flashvars="s=aT01NzM1NTcyMDMmaz1BSHZvNiZhPTg2Nzk3NjhfSGprSEUmdT1QdXR0cw==" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="320" height="180">

    /object>


    The thing I don't get is why is the gobbletygook different for the same video. I looked at Barbs and yours and hers are the same. (See my post a couple above.)

    Hate to be a pain in the ass here, but it's not just me ... lots of folks are having a similar problem.

    BTW, I did try to log out of Smuggy to see if the code is different for an anonymous clip but it was the same.
