Lesson 1, Introduction, safety, and handgun features. sub-three: Handgun features, “Actions” video segment.
FAILS (discovered afterward takes a significant amount of time…) to load, allows the viewer to scroll below and read content, and depress the “continue” button.
Until the video segment is played out, FAILS to unlock the system to carry forward and allow the viewer to continue the module.
This wouldn’t be so bad, but if the viewer does not view this video, they have to completely re-play the content to this point, not moving forward.
Reproducible. This occurs in Windows 10 Microsoft Edge, Version 86.0.622.51 (Official Build) (64-bit), and Version 86.0.4240.111 (Official Build) (64-bit) Google Chrome.
*** I discovered, after leaving Chrome windows open in the background and playing content out to the same location in Edge, upon returning to Chrome, a system dialog box is asking if “I’m still here.” Selecting I’m still here then allows me to start and play the “Actions” video segment.
It seems either this file is much larger than others that have played before. Therefore, it takes significant time to be served from the origination file server, or there is some ‘bottleneck’ in the path between the source server(s) and my destination here in Atlanta.
I can assure you I have a fast, wide, gigabit pipe from Comcast, and this experience is unique in my recent experience. I would estimate at least a five or more minute wait for the load as I experienced the MS Edge session pick up and start playing after discovering the Chrome session actually had the content qued and playing.
I made mention in chat last Friday about my experience. It was only today I discovered the extended wait time for the video clip to download and become available. I am documenting here to provide a location for other feedback as I and the userbase may come upon issues or points of discussion.
