Video objects with Transcript/text documents as part of object: Clicking thumbnail downloads PDF instead of playing video

Project:RUcore/NJDH/Partner Portal Search
Component:User Interface - Service Agent
Category:bug report

Following the instructions in the attached spreadsheet, I created and ingested a test video object similar to video mosaic moving image objects: with a video file, and additional supplemental PDF files. The end result is an object that has a properly playing video and usable PDF documents, but the thumbnail, when clicked, downloads one of the PDF files instead of playing the video as expected.

Example test object is:

<a href="" title=""></a>

I spoke to Chad about this issue and he needs some guidance.


I propose the following. The thumbnails hyperlink UX is identical to the action of the text hyperlink for the video/audio. Here are two examples on the dev system.

Audio -

Video -

If this is a suitable solution I can make the code changes necessary for testing.

After consulting with Rhonda and others the proposed solution has been approved. I have implemented the changes on test. Peter K. has been assigned the testing.

For testing look for both audio and video resources and visit the full resource display. The audio or video will start automatically. If more than one audio or video datastream is available clicking on the thumbnail will start the first file in the series.

Please test this behavior in the following portals:

Test RUcore - <a href="" title=""></a>
Test SOAR - <a href="" title=""></a>
Test NJDH - <a href="" title=""></a>
Test generic portal(VMC) - <a href="" title=""></a>

Everything works as expected, but I was unable to test in two situations:

Unable to test audio on SOAR because only one record has audio files, and access is denied.

Unable to test audio on VMC as there were no records with audio files.

Since the VVMC didn't have any audio please use this portal.

Please retest audio in SOAR. I have temporarily granted you access.
