Help With Website Video Problem
web video issue

Hi All,

I have an interesting problem that I haven't had on any of my other sites. I have a simple webpage at
[idolwhitepens.com...] There is a video on the page, and a button to click through to the site I want to refer people to.

The problem is, if I click the button while the video is playing, nothing happens until the video ends, or I pause the video, at which time the new webpage opens.

The page at [idolwhitepens.com...] is set up the same way, but clicking the button works almost immediately on that page. The videos are hosted from the same server, the buttons are pointing to the same page, and everything else about the embed code and the link html is the same as far as I can see, but one is behaving the way I want it to (the second one) and one is not (the first one).

All help much appreciated,

Tom, the button works fine on both pages on my Mac using both FireFox and Safari.

OK, thanks for replying. I think this may be a FireFox issue on my machine, plugins or something.

Thanks again.

FYI, one of the admins here was able to duplicate your problem in Opera on a PC.
