Time sink in media...video stuck in loop

This was in the Questions category. I am copying it over to this Bugs category to see if it will get more visibility here.

Something’s not working the way it seems like it should.

When I … Link a time: sink in a video media component to a multiple choice item to select different time stamps. Code works in preview mode but not for students (looping described below)

I saw …video went to selected time stamp, and looped about 1 sec or so of the video, getting stuck there

But I expected …video to go to selected time stamp and play through when student presses play

Here’s the link to the page, dashboard, or activity:

And here are some screenshots or a video:

Thanks for your help.

Thanks! This is a known bug. The preview is actually incorrect, and the time sink should set the play head at a fixed location. There isn’t a great way yet to start the play head at a location and right now your best move is to edit your video and display different videos conditionally.
