Disabling an Extension, when leaving the sheet

Dear all,

i have built a video player extension based on video.js to play videos in QV.

I have one issue left:

If i change the sheet ( to a sheet without the extension) the video keeps playing. I can't see the video, but still can hear the audio, because the video.js doesn't know about the visibility i suppose.

I'm now looking for a way to "tell"/"trigger" the extension one last time, that it needs to be paused.

I'm thinking about OnLeaveSheet Trigger to set a variable, thats property of the extension, and when it changes i pause the player.

Plan B would be to build a document extension checking, weather it's running on a specific sheet name and otherwise pausing/disposing the videoplayer.

Anybody had this issue before and knows, if theres a proper way to do that?

Best regards,
