onPlay Firing Twice - any fix yet

Hi, I noticed another thread regarding the OnPlay function firing twice when called, and I was wondering if anyone came up with a workaround for this? I am using the function to initiate tracking with a third party, so I'm getting double hits per Play.

Any info or suggestions would be welcomed, thanks!

The best workaround currently available is to set a variable and check the value to suppress the fire twice behavior. There will be a better solution in an upcoming version, but no release date has been announced.

The workaround looks like this:

var runOnce = false;
if (runOnce == false) {
runOnce = true;
//additional code here will only run once on play

Hope this helps,
