iOS mobile player problem

Post by anodeyes » Thu Jan 16, 2020 3:41 am

Howdy -

I'd appreciate some guidance for a problem I'm having with an iOS issue regarding the native player.

I'm using LiveCode 9 . 5 . 0 with xCode 10 . 1

Everything is working fine except for one thing.

I use the code below.

On the simulator, the code displays the video controller (that is: play button, scrub bar, etc.). However, on the device itself, (iPhone 8, iOS 13 . 1 . 3), the file plays, but the video controller doesn't appear.

Any idea why that is and what I can do to make it appear?

Thanks so much.



Code: Select all

on MouseUp
   put "Bubble Breathing" into field "audioTitle"
   set the visible of group "playerMask" to true
   mobileControlCreate "player", "videoControl"
   mobileControlSet "videoControl", "filename", specialFolderPath("engine") & "/mp3s/cpr-breathing-bubble . mp3"

   mobileControlSet "videoControl", "rect", the rect of graphic "playerRect"
   mobileControlSet "videoControl", "showController", true
   mobileControlSet "videoControl", "visible", true
   mobileControlSet "videoControl", "backgroundColor", "10,255,125,80"
   mobileControlDo "videoControl", "play"
end MouseUp

You might try LC 9.6. It's in early development right now but I hear they fixed some player issues on mobile apps.
