YouTubeVideo only partially working

Hi there,

I am trying to link current time (play position) in a video to a geographical location so I need to be able to access current_time on a video during playback but current_time always shows as 0.

In testing I’ve found I can read and write to youtube_id and autoplay fine (the correct video plays based on the modified youtube_id and it plays automatically with autoplay = True) but I can’t read or write to current time and I can’t read duration. There are no errors that I can see. The values of these variables remain at 0 and changing current_time has no effect on the video playback.

I’ve got the same results on both Firefox and Chrome on Ubuntu. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Paul

Observed the same behaviour, at least for “current_time”. You can assign a value, but it remains zero after assignment.

Thanks for letting us know, @Matthias (and welcome to the Forum!)

Moving to Bug Reports.
