Video block, stop auto play
I am using the video block but as there is going to be several videos on the page I really don't want all the vids auto playing.
I have looked in the view.php for this block and have changed all autoplay/start code from true to false but it has no effect on the videos, they still start automatically.
Any ideas how I can achieve this?
Then you get all the great 'sharing' and 'embedding' features that these services provide.
I originally built the Flash Video block because the core block wasn't meeting my needs. The Media Library block works with file sets, so you can embed a set of videos or audio files onto your page and have tags or paging handled automatically. Auto-play is optional.

The way to it will be to append &autostart=false to the flashvar and data values.
But doing so makes the video disappear.
I see autostart is on the TODO list.
Or did you get this sorted out?
and try googling.. but not find any clue for now to resolve this problem.
this the swfobject i attach.
hope can help. :)
and have these lines added to the action-script
just after "stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, volUp);"
bigPlay_mc.alpha = 1;
This will work fine.
Check the file attached!
I've rebuild it for you!
So you can have the videoPlayer.swf that doesn't automatically start the movie - and use it directly. (Put it where it belongs: /concrete/blocks/video )
the folder location of the .SWF has probably changed to e.g.:
