YouTube's autoplay function doesn't work

Post by LPChip » Mon Jul 21, 2008 7:12 pm

There are some very good playlists on youtube.

For instance this one: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p ... 212288A7F7

Since these are songs, it would be nice to play them on autoplay, so the next video is played once the current is finished playing.

Strangelly, in Avant Browser, this function doesn't work. I can play the video normally, and all other functions work without a problem, but at the end of the video, I get a normal: maybe you like this video slideshow option. Its like the auto play was never enabled. The link to manually play the next does work in Avant Browser.

If I load the exact same url from avant browser in IE, it does play the next movie automatically.

Just to be on the safe side, I also loaded the url from above in Orca Browser. It plays fine there too.

My Avant Browser version number is: 11.6 build 20

Something that I noticed, is that at the moment it's supposed to load a new video, the slideshow refreshes. So it loads 2 slideshows rapidly after eachother.

Can anyone confirm that its not just my pc?

Is there no one that can confirm this to be either a bug or just my pc?

Thanks. I'll start searching for the problem again. Does anyone happen to know where I could look for this? Any help is appreciated.

Yes. I can even activate/deactivate the autoplay feature there, along with the play next link (which does work)

I don't even hear the "click" when a page is being loaded/refreshed. It does work in my avant browser though, just not with this autoplay feature.

I will go through all the avant browser options. Perhaps there's something that I can turn on, to make this work.

EDIT: Can't find a setting, but something obviously is going wrong. I see the slideshow about what to play next being refreshed though. Can it be that avant browser is so quick that its a time-in issue? (being too quick for the right page to load)

I am on a very fast connection (20 mbit)

I can confirm the issue here. It doesn't cycle on to the 2nd vid, just the first one plays...

Hmm... Okay. That makes things more complicated, but probably also more easy to find.

I've just tested the same thing on my laptop, and the same results.

The autoplay function doesn't skip to the next video.
Specs of the laptop are similar to my pc. Also running 11.6 Build 20 on XP with SP2.

I can't find any setting that could cause it though... :( I give up.
