When scrolling through images in loupe view, using the mousewheel, scrolling / navigation stops when you get to a video file, and it is not possible to scroll in any direction Navigating past the video with arrow keys works fine, and mousewheel scrolling is then usable again (until next video file)I suspect it is related to the new "integrated" video player, since I never had this problem with Lightroom 3.xBug exists on both Windows and Mac, using Lightroom 4.1

The problem is probably that videos support "scrubbing" with the mouse, so the app has to make a choice when a mouse-over event happens. If it grabs the mouse for the scrub, then logically it has to end the scroll. I don't have a design solution, but I see this everywhere with integrated UIs.

Well, I can't scrub videos with the mousewheel, only by dragging the slider.
The mousewheel (up or down) event probably gets dropped / not handled when it triggers on the video UI element.

I can't scrub with the mouse wheel.

I have the same problem as Roger. I'd be scrolling through images with the mouse wheel. When I come to a movie, everything comes to a standstill. Not good.

Just tried it again. It is very bizarre but true. You can scroll with the mouse wheel if you have videos.

I think, if you scroll fast enough, you can pass by a video, until the embedded video player is not fully loaded.

The problem is more general and my guess is that the embedded video player does not pass all the input message to the core app.

Here's a related topic: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

Also, the Escape key does not work as it does for photos — goes back to Grid from Loupe.
