I am having feedback from different sources telling me that autoAlpha is not doing its job when working with the YouTube player.


I am very skeptical of it but cannot replicate it as the claim is for IE11 on Windows7 and Windows8 - I am on Windows10 and was foolish enough to convert my older laptop into a Linux only box...


The codepen is as bare bones as I can possibly make, due to the extra components needed to test this very particular scenario. At the moment I am really just looking to get a confirmation whether this is really happening or not.


Anybody out there has a machine with Windows 7 and can verifty this for me?


Many thanks.

Hello Dipsom,


I just tested you example on PC Windows 7 (64-bit) and on latest updated IE11 and i see your video fade in. after page load.


Just to give you a heads up, but you probably know of it already! But Google came out with a new YouTube video API, that is really a big improvement from their flash and javascript video player API




But again i saw your video fade in.. i even tried extending the fade and it faded in as expected on load. :)

Hi Jonathan,


Thanks for that. Like I said, I was and still am very skeptical of that claim. But while I can't replicate it, I can't know for sure.


And you are quite right as to the new API, but, unfortunately, this is for a banner ad and I was instructed to use this old API to my shock an horror. But hey, such is life.


Let's leave this as being marked as not a bug.
