View Full Version : stop video from downloading

Once a user hits play on an html5 <video> tag, is it possible to stop the video from caching? I am using jquery mobile and when I go to the video page and then back to the main page, the video doesn't actually go away.

I have it being paused right now when it leaves the video page, but it still downloads in the back ground. I read that you could set the src attribute to "", but that doesn't seem to work.

I haven't tried this exactly but can you do something like instead of having jquery do src="" have it do: $('video').remove();
