Description (last modified by eric) (diff)

As a Viewer with a playlist of videos, after an Ad plays, videos in the playlist should start right up so I can watch the next video without having to click play again.

Sample:

Please see  http://bk.fs.stackop.com/test1 for our test link using the JW

Player with dfp. The username/pass is fs/fs. Please note that this video (and all of our videos) is technically a playlist of clips. We have this set to show a pre-roll on the 2nd clip and a post-roll on the 5th clip.

current workaround:

Basically, there's several issues with playAd() and playlists - both linear and nonlinear.

A rough workaround is to replace the onBeforePlay() function with this:

var midroll = true; jwplayer().onPlay(function(event) {

if(jwplayer().getPlaylistIndex() == 1 && midroll) {

midroll = false; jwplayer().setControls(false); jwplayer().playAd(tag);

} else {

jwplayer().setControls(true);

}

});
