HTML5 script is logging - why?

I have an issue which i'm not able to figure out. For some reason the Kaltura HTML5 js want's to log some messages to the console, and I don't want that.

I'm including this within :

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  mw.setConfig("Kaltura.LeadWithHTML5", true);
  mw.setConfig("EmbedPlayer.AttributionButton", false);
  mw.setConfig("EmbedPlayer.EnableOptionsMenu", false);
  mw.setConfig("EmbedPlayer.EnableIpadNativeFullscreen", true);
  mw.setConfig("EmbedPlayer.UseFlashOnAndroid", false);
  mw.setConfig("EmbedPlayer.EnableRightClick", false);

And this is the video embed code in :

<object id="kaltura_player_1347548504" name="kaltura_player_1347548504" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowNetworking="all" allowScriptAccess="always" height="435" width="630" bgcolor="#000000" xmlns:dc="" xmlns:media="" rel="media:video" resource="" data=""><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowNetworking" value="all" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><param name="flashVars" value="streamerType=rtmp&&" /><param name="movie" value="" /><a href="">Video Platform</a> <a href="">Video Management</a> <a href="">Video Solutions</a> <a href="">Video Player</a> <a rel="media:thumbnail" href=""></a> <span property="dc:description" content=""></span><span property="media:title" content="Part1-Mysterious Disease"></span> <span property="media:width" content="630"></span><span property="media:height" content="435"></span> <span property="media:type" content="application/x-shockwave-flash"></span> </object>

So... In the log I get:
Kaltura HTML5 Version: on line 66
Kaltura HTML5 Version: ( iframe ) on line 68

Which comes from: console.log(msg) in the file.

Can anyone help clarify this?

I'm sorry - I can't show you the staging site.

Often the most important piece of info is the version of the library. So we log that to the console by default.

You can overwrite by setting:
window.console.log = function(){};

That may not help with the iframe... You could also copy the mwEmbedLoader locally ( i.e what server up ) and just remove the console log, and or copy it locally if your system is running php and again modify it to not log the version.

Thanks! I'll try including the mwEmbedLoader myself.

Too bad I want to use this as my essay topic but these codes are really confusing! This post will be much better if you took some time to explain this matter!

This issue is new to me. Thank god I never met with this issue. Actually the error Html5 script logging is also found on my friends machine. I don’t think this is a serious issue. The better is to follow what the admin say.EMR
