Does the "Popular Tab" feature in Confluence 6.x still display a video? Edited

In our current production version, 5.5.2, we have turned off the "Popular Tab" feature (Admin console > Manage add-ons > System > Dashboard macros > disabale "Popular Tab"). We did this because this feature included a video that would automatically play for the user. In our case, though, our security has asked us to turn off the video, and block the proxy.

However, I don't see this video in 6.x.x. Can any one confirm that it is now gone? In which case, we can turn Popular Tab back on when we upgrade.

Much thanks,

On my Confluence 5.5.2 test instance there was a video on the Popular tab but it did not play automatically - I had to press the play button. 

On my Confluence 6.2.3 instance there is no video on the Popular tab so I think you are safe to turn it back on. Please try the upgrade and enable the module on a test instance first to avoid surprises in Production.

Hi Ann,

Thanks for checking. Yes, I think we'll be turning that back on.
