Known Issues
============

The Fluid Project uses a JIRA website to track bugs: http://issues.fluidproject.org
Some of the known issues in this release are described here:

Captions:
    VP-100: Make captions show for YouTube videos
    VP-87:  Captions don't work in IE8
    VP-264: Captions don't show with .mp4 videos
    VP-4:   Safari; Track elements with data sources not working
    
Full Screen:
    VP-258: YouTube videos break in full screen mode
    VP-191: Implement fullscreen functionality for Opera and IE
    VP-279: In IE8, invisible full screen button is tab focusable. Going full screen removes video player from tab order upon returning to normal mode.
    
UIO Integration:
    VP-269: Transcript language is incorrect in the language drop down after specifying a language in UIO
    VP-88:  UIO inputs preferences not being correctly applied on load
    VP-280: Contrast styles don't apply to captions
    VP-107: Changing text size with UIO does not change Video Player size until refresh for Flash videos
    VP-278: In IE8, focus appears on video player container, but activates UIO instead
    
Playback:
    VP-277: Pressing space on the video container does not start the video in IE9 and IE8.
    
Scrubbing:
    VP-284: In IE8, keyboard scrubbing stops working after attempting to scrub
