BUG: Player doesn't initialise when off screen when page loads

If you embed this player below the fold of the page, i.e. low down on a long page where the player is not visible when the page first loads, the player does not initialise and the player does not work.

In other words, SL2VideoPlayer does not work unless you embed the video at the top of the page where the player window is visible as the page loads.

This bug affects the latest version, 1.5, and the same issue has existed in all previous versions.

It'd be really great to get this fixed!

 

Example

The SL2VideoPlayer lower down this page doesn't work:

It sometimes does start working if you use an anchor link to make it visible when the page loads:
