Ticket #8222 (closed bug: wontfix)
Double Asset Request for Video Tag
|Reported by:||ben@…||Owned by:||ben@…|
I've only tested this in Chrome 9, but here are the steps to reproduce:
- create an empty HTML document, embedding jQuery (I've tried this with 1.4.3 and 1.5
- create a video tag string, wrap it with jQuery (ex: var vidtag = $('<video controls="true"><source src="myvideo.mp4"></video>');)
- open the networking tools to see the files that chrome is requesting. myvideo.mp4 is requested twice.
Chrome is already relatively unstable when it comes to HTTPStreaming, this seems to be the straw that broke the camel's back. Doing a double request like this seems to lock up Chrome more often than not for me in my situation.
This problem seems unique to jQuery - setting the innerHTML of a div to the video tag without jQuery doesn't perform a double request, and of course neither does just having a video tag already on the page
