Notable contents of this release include a new release of Player V4 and Player V4 documentation updates.
Player V4 Release - Version 4.2.14
This release of Player V4 includes fixes for the following bugs:
- On Mac devices using Safari, the Discovery tray was misaligned. This issue is resolved.
- When using the Safari browser, the Up Next title text was overlapping the description. This issue is resolved.
- On iOS devices using Google IMA ads on a Player enabled for Discovery, after starting a Discovery video, Google IMA ads only played with audio (no video). This issue has been resolved for iPad devices. Discovery is not supported on iPhone devices.
- On iPad devices, when multiple V4 players were embedded on the same page, only one player would play successfully (additional players would not play even after you paused the first video). This issue has been resolved so that you can have multiple players on iPad devices, play the first video, pause the first video (or watch to the end) and successfully play videos from another player afterward. Please note that there is a known limitation that iOS that only allows a single media to play at a given time (you cannot play multiple videos at the same time).
