Javascript Conditional Logic

I have a detail page on my site that displays articles. The articles can be one of two types(image or video).
If the article is tagged as being a "image" then it will display an image at the top but
if the article is tagged with being a "video" then it will display a video.

Currently, this schema seeming to be working EXCEPT if the page is tagged as being a video and AFTER the video plays, the page then seems to not know if it is tagged as a "video" or "image" because it reloads as neither with NO video or image displayed

{tag_detailpage_image_or_video} has two values(image,video)

Could it be that this script has no closing curly brace and parenthesis?

<script>
     (function($) {
     var webAppMediaType = "{tag_detailpage_image_or_video}";
     var imageContainer = $("#marqueeStripe");
     var videoContainer = $("#videoStripe");
     if ( webAppMediaType === "image" ) {
       videoContainer.hide(); imageContainer.show(); }
     if ( webAppMediaType === "video" ) {
             imageContainer.hide(); videoContainer.show(); }
</script>

It should be:
<script>
     (function($) {
     var webAppMediaType = "{tag_detailpage_image_or_video}";
     var imageContainer = $("#marqueeStripe");
     var videoContainer = $("#videoStripe");
     if ( webAppMediaType === "image" ) {
       videoContainer.hide(); imageContainer.show(); }
     if ( webAppMediaType === "video" ) {
             imageContainer.hide(); videoContainer.show(); }
    });
</script>
