How to Play videos on iphone/ipad?

Postby stullj » Sun May 05, 2019 10:10 pm

Hello,
I have successfully added a video to a flashcard by adding the xxx.mp4 filename to a Picture 2 cell in an excel spreadsheet, and imported the card and media successfully into the app, but I don't know how to make the video play. I seem to recall that there is some trick. The play controls display (fullscreen, play, mute, 15 sec forward/backwards etc), but nothing happens. What do I need to do?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Is this for Android? Videos are not currently working for Android. Something changed with Android that broke the app. I'll be releasing an update likely next week, which should fix this. I still can't get full screen working yet (after Android's change), but at least they should play. Sorry for the trouble.

Grrr, it seems iOS 12.2 broke my video playing. I don't know why yet and I'll need to look into it. Thanks for letting me know. I'll post an update here when I have one.

Thanks Ernie,
I'm sorry you have more work to do, but you did help me. I was able to import the flashcards on an old iPad 2 running ios9 and the video works, so I can keep on truckin'.
Thanks, and good luck,
Jeff

Videos should now work again on iOS and Android.
But on Android, the full screen button doesn't work for me yet, and I don't know why.

A couple options I'm considering adding in the near future:
1) Play full screen by default (iPad)
2) Auto play
