How to stop video playing after interaction


#1

Hi support gurus

I have created a Lead Capture page that has a video that can be played by the visitor.

I have tried this using multiple sources for the video.

The issue I have is that if the visitor clicks the more info button the opt-in form appears but the video keeps playing in the background!

I read all about this happening in a modal window and know that it is possible to control with some script.

Can anyone help me fix this for the scenario above

Thanks in advance

To control videos the way you want, you need to use either Vimeo or Youtube API.

It's not a beginners' task actually. You need to use their API along with Javascript code in order to control playback, or multiple videos.

Thanks Vincent.

Then I guess I will look at something else!

I do not have time to learn how to do this at this time!!

Thanks again

Summery of solution: Stop video playing by unloading and reloading videos with with code.

PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT a programmer, I’m going to try to explain this as best I can, so if it isn’t clear please don’t judge too harshly - also no wacky conspiracy theories about the Jesuits please! If you need clarification, I’ll try to find out from the programmer who helpaed figure this out.

We needed to create a way to stop videos from playing when switching divs within a symbol that each contain multiple videos which users may have started playing.

Here is the working site: http://beajesuit.webflow.io, (when it launches you can find it here: www.beajesuit.org)

On the home page you’ll see a section called “Is God Calling You” with four vertically stacked buttons. (This element is a symbol that appears on all the other pages using the button “Your Discernment” on the sup-page main nav).

I needed to stop the videos with both the vertically stacked buttons on the right and the circular buttons within each section.

There is an HTML Embed at the bottom of the stack (above). Referencing the ID of each button and the ID of each video (note. the ID is on the video NOT the div containing the video). It unloads and reloads the video.

I think that covers it. Hope that helps.
