Ticket #185 (closed defect: fixed)
Flowplayer autoPlay not consistently set when ad not played

here's a test scenario (it's an incomplete config, but it will help you understand what I'm trying to say) and the problem is ONLY evident if the 'linear' ad you were supposed to display does NOT show up, either because it was GeoIP constrained or simply because any other 'ad delivery' rules.
The problem is very simple, assume the following:
The above config will make sure that your Video ad will NOT start automatically unless you CLICK on the player to make it start, correct? well.. it is correct as long as there IS a Video Ad to DELIVER, if there is NOT, then the Playlist will start automatically because of the settings in the autoPlay are set to true (see the playlist config below)
"url": " http://www.venetubo.com/somevideo.mp4",
Now, whats the problem with the above scenario? consistency. As you can see the OVA plugin is set NOT to autostart any advertising and it assumes a video 'slot' is coming, but when the slot is 'empty' the player behaves differently.
Sorry if all this sounds confusing, I don't know if I explained myself clearly.
