Server behaviour



Just wondering if it is normal behaviour for the server to destroy html templates on a ADD play on load command ? (ver 2.2)


It should only remove the video or template on the layer you are trying to load and or play out of.
For example, if you have a video on layer 3 and a template on later 4, playing a template in layer 3 should only remove the video.


thanks ouelletec I should of been more clear is the below normal?

Just unclear why the ‘Destroyed template’ appears after the ADD command - surely that would make sense to appear after a STOP or REMOVE command?


IIRC CEF is run in a separate thread and this is referring to the release (destruction) of it from the main thread.
