Multiple videos play in Chrome

I've viewed a couple posts lately (see below) describing odd behavior in Chrome where multiple media files with play at the same time, or not at all. The recommended fix was to wait until v27 or v28 of Chrome was released as the issue was expected to be fixed. Unfortunately, I'm running v29 and still running into a similar issue.



I have a page developed with two videos present on the page (not the actual video files, but Ext HTML objects that call the videos). Both Ext HTML objects are not visible on load, and I have actions on the page set to show one of the videos based on the value of a variable. This technique works perfectly in IE and early versions of Chrome, but recent Chrome versions are not respecting the conditions on my actions. In Chrome, both videos play about a second apart and this creates a nasty echo effect.



Is anyone still running into this Chrome-specific media issue? I'd prefer not to break out my videos onto separate pages or try to "stop" videos just for the sake of Chrome. Thanks in advance!
