New enhancement for 5.16.1 new-features-and-enhancements-5-15-3

  • Added support for server-side DPR optimization.
  • Added support for sanitizing URL configuration parameters. Pop-up viewers now ignore URL configuration parameters that are defined in the query string. This functionality is done in case the domain in the parameter’s value does not match the base viewer domain or does not belong to a list of allowed domains.
  • Updated product branding to Adobe Experience Viewers.
  • Fixed keyboard navigation inside the SocialShare drop-down when one of the subcomponents is disabled in the CSS.
  • Fixed JavaScript error when using poster on iOS9 and older devices.
  • Fixed incorrect reporting of the current video playback time as NaN.

Known issues and restrictions known-issues-and-restrictions

  • The Image Serving modifiers from IS commands are not added to the req=set request by design. However, modifiers that only affect image display work fine. Modifiers affecting size must be used in a complex asset. For example: {Scene7SharedAssets/Backpack_B?extendn=0.5%252C0.5%252C0.5%252C0.5}

  • Scaling the browser window leads to incorrect resizing.

  • iPad 2 - Large eCatalog assets crash Safari on iOS.

All viewers all-viewers

  • Watermarks, obfuscation, and locking are not supported.
  • Image presets are not supported.
  • Adding or removing viewer from the DOM using display:none CSS or by dynamically detaching it from the parent node is not supported.

HTML5 all viewers html5-all-viewers

  • Embedding a viewer in a table can result in incorrect sizing or placement of the viewer in non-native full-screen mode. Adobe recommends you use DIVs instead.
  • Parameters with explicit instance names in the code require instance names in the URL as well to be overwritten (for example, zoomView.iconfeffect=0).
  • Image Serving command crop is not supported.
  • Close button only works if the viewer is open in a child window.
  • IS commands modifier does not support Image Serving modifiers that affect image size.

HTML5 eCatalog html5-ecatalog

  • Navigating to other HTML page and then returning occasionally causes the viewer to reset back to the first page.
  • Page layout occasionally displays incorrectly after rotating the iOS device. Zooming into the page corrects the layout.
  • Internal links only to left-most page in multi-page spreads. Affects mobile devices in portrait mode.

HTML5 Mixed Media html5-mixed-media

  • Soundtrack play is not supported.

HTML5 Social html5-social

  • To render thumbnails properly in outgoing email, the serverurl modifier must have an absolute URL.

HTML5 Video html5-video

  • The poster image can encounter a max size error. Increase the limit setting for Image Serving Publish.
  • Video captions require a company rule set if the hosting HTML page is served from an external server (not a Dynamic Media server). Contact Adobe Customer Care for assistance.
  • Analytics tracking can report incorrect play percentage due to buffering.
  • On iPad or Android™ devices, a black frame shows instead of a poster image.

  • On Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers, occasional macro blocking occurs during video seek in HLS streaming mode.
