dissable video playback in live view

Hi all,

I'm running CC18 and I have a site that is designed with a looping video as a background element for a div. I've gotten very accustomed to running in split workflow mode with code and live view up, just trying to see if theres a way that I can turn video playback off in the live view portion of dreamweaver. It plays back fine, but, with a constant looped 6mb file, after a while dreamweaver becomes unstable and crashes. currently I'm comment tagging the video out to actually work on the site, but it would be nice if I could just tell it not to play and instead maybe display the poster image.

relevant system info:

Windows 10 Pro

6700K

32gb ram

GTX1070

OS/software and site directories on separate SSDs

Running DW build 10155

Thanks!

I love your system, may have to think of upgrading. I'm still in a quandary about SSD's though, they seem to have a habit of kicking the bucket without warning.

As far as your question is concerned, there is no magic solution in Dreamweaver. I think that what you are doing at the moment is your best bet.

As a side remark, if the looping is bothering you, think of the poor user to the site who cannot switch it off at a whim. This is one of the reasons that I tend to keep animations to a minimum.

Thanks!  I've found in all the situations that I've used SSDs they out perform and outlast spinning disks hands down. Its true they don't show degradation prior to death, but their read/write cycles are much higher and with basic computer use it will likely never be an issue.

Good to know, I didn't know if there was a setting to disable preview that I  was just missing.

As for the user, yes, I typically don't like the background video elements, I refuse to make it full screen, as it is, it covering a div's background that's only got a height of about 600px. I considering having it auto play once and then display the poster, or auto play on loop but pulling it from a streaming service in hopes to reduce burden on users.

I took a break from markup about 2 years ago and I've just been getting back into it and theres so many new ways to do things. but It all driving to that UX.

Thanks!
