Video Viewer presets beginning of video blurry


Level 1



I am working on adding video to a website, and I am using AEM's video viewer presets to essentially embed the video in. The video has to be looped and auto-played. The issue I am having is that every video viewer I work with (I've made several now) makes about the first 6 seconds of the video really blurry, and then the rest (16 second long video) is completely fine. 


Does anyone know why this may be happening? Is there anything I can do about it? I'm guessing it has to do with looping and auto-playing the video because the .mp4 video is not blurry when I view it locally on my desktop. I have also tried exporting this video with high bitrate, adaptive high bitrate, low bitrate and a bunch of other random settings. It doesn't change how it looks in AEM and ultimately on the site when I embed it in.


Any help or guidance on this would be really appreciated. Thanks!

Have you tried playing the video without the dispatcher? Try the page with IP. Also, check the issue with a smaller video first. What happens when you turn off the auto-play, does buffering takes some time still?
