VideoJS audio player start button is misleading
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Now a huge picture with two control buttons is used as a launch button. I tried to turn down the volume for a very long time, and could not understand why I was unable to do this. Can you imagine how angry I am? :)

It is counterintuitive to use a button that depicts items with a specific meaning. You need to redraw it, preferably through the CSS.

Note that the current audio placeholder was selected to have a similar shape and size to existing inline players to minimize disruption to article layouts.

If a different placeholder is chosen, it will either need to have the same shape or it will be known to change layouts to a greater degree than existing articles may be prepared for.

We can set a fixed width for the block, but here it is mainly about the fact that such buttons cannot be used :)
