Media cutting off before end

hi

having a bit of a problem at the minute with a video which i have added to all of our layouts with the correct duration, but part way through playing this video it then cuts out and starts playing the first video in that region, i cant see any duration on the layout or anything .

What CMS and player versions are you using please?

Player will show the layout as it was specified in the CMS, ie if you have 3 videos and have specified each one to have 10s duration, then player will play them for exactly 10s and move on to the next video and so on.

With videos it is usually better to leave the duration at 0 (which means auto detect video length).

we are using 1.7.9 (latest in the 1.7 series) ,thats a useful tip , i assumed you had to provide a duration
