Video plays from deleted tab

Postby hbowman » Wed Aug 01, 2018 5:18 am

I've had this happen several times, so I'm sure it's a bug. I've tried to duplicate it manually, but as yet have not been successful.

Some blog posting that comes up in Vienna has a link to a YouTube video. I click on it and watch the video. At the end of the video, YouTube shows me a countdown clock with an "up next" promotion. I close the tab to leave YouTube and go back to the blog. A few seconds later, I am treated to the sound track of the follow-on video, from the deleted tab, and the only way to get it to stop is to quit Vienna.

OK, I can duplicate it on demand.

The feed URL is http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheWarOnGuns

The article page is http://waronguns.blogspot.com/2018/08/d ... on+Guns%29

Click on the link "Dish of the day." Let the brief video play out to the end, until you see the "Up Next" spinner. Then click on the X in the tab to close it.

Now wait for a few seconds, and you will be treated to a phantom soundtrack of the next video, even though there is no tab associated with it.

I can verify this. Very annoying! Happens to me all the time on the CBS Sports feed.

I am having the same issue. And it isn't just with YouTube videos. The audio from any video source seems to continue playing even after the tab has been closed.

So does this posting qualify as "reporting the bug," or is there somewhere else I need to file it to make it an action item? I'm asking because by now I would have expected to see at least an acknowledgment of the problem from the management, but I've seen nothing here but "me too" reports.
