Software Feature Releases

Player V4 Release - Version 4.4.11

Bugs Fixed in This Release

  • This release fixes a bug that occurred when using MP4 video assets with the bit_wrapper.min.js video plugin. The player would only display one closed caption language even if video assets had multiple closed caption language files available. This issue is resolved and closed captions function as expected.
  • This release fixes a bug that occurred when using the main_html5.min.js video plugin on an Android device with Google IMA pre-roll ads. On replaying the video, playback would not resume after the pre-roll ad. This issue is resolved and playback functions as expected.
  • This release implements an automated way to update the Player version number sent to Omniture for reporting.
