Audio and Videos not working properly

Post by paskr18 » Mon Oct 01, 2018 1:11 pm

Good morning or evening every one,

I am currently encountering an issue while using the LiveCode media player.
I used to worked on the Community Edition 8.1.7 and I have now started working with the Community Edition 9.0.1.
Before my scripts for audio or videos (8.1.7) used to work on development environment and also windows exe. but now my audios work only and development and the videos not anymore. And when I try to generate an apk, the media doesn't work at all.
Here is the code I use for audio:
on mouseUp
if the environment is "mobile" then
put (specialFolderPath("engine") & "/2AF/Audio/Leson 1/haiti chéri pil bel peyi.mp3") into tPath
set the filename of player "AudioPlayer" to tPath
start player "AudioPlayer"
else
put (specialFolderPath("resources") & "/2AF/Audio/Leson 1/haiti chéri pil bel peyi.mp3") into tPath
set the filename of player "AudioPlayer" to tPath
start player "AudioPlayer"
end if
end mouseUp

Here is the one for videos:
if the environment is "mobile" then
put (specialFolderPath("engine") & "/2AF/Videos/Leson 1/Earth_to_Haiti.mp4") into tPath
set the filename of player "VideoPlayer" to tPath
start player "VideoPlayer"
else
put (specialFolderPath("documents") & "/2AF/Videos/Leson 1/Earth_to_Haiti.mp4") into tPath
set the filename of player "VideoPlayer" to tPath
start player "VideoPlayer"
end if


Thanks in advance for any comment.

Some versions of Windows don't include the mp4 codec. You may need to install it.

Also, all resources are in the specialFolderPath "resources" now. The engine folder will redirect to resources but it might help to use resources for all media paths.

Hi paskr18,

welcome to the forum!
What Jaques said, and "player" objects are not supported on the mobile platform!


Best

Klaus
