Leave Books and Open this link message for videos

I am able to successfully export my epub and view it in iBook on my mac. However, when I transfer it to my ipad and view it (again, in iBook), I repeated popup messages that ask "Leave Books and Open This Link" messages with links that start with "reporting://"

This seems to be only for embedded movies in the publication.

I can cancel the message and still play the video.

Hi jgold,
This was a defect introduced in QuarkXPress 2017 due to some changes done by apple for iOS. We resolved this issue in QuarkXPress2018. please update to latest version.
Thanks,
Srinivas

Well thanks, but I was not planning on upgrading yet - -it's not in my budget. Is there a way to get this patch without going the full upgrade? It would seem if there's a defect in the product it should be patchable.
