Audio not recording into a container field in FM Go


FileMaker Go


13.0.4 iPad and iPhone

Operating system version

iOS 7.1.2

Description of the issue

Create a new record on iDevice using FileMaker Go.  Click in a Container field and choose the 'Audio' option.  Record audio.  The first record works, subsequent records in the same session that are created will then not record audio.  They do appear to work and place a file in the container, however the file is only 28 byte large and has no data.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a brand new FM 13 file with a container field (default setting, no external storage).
Copy file to iPhone or iPad (same issue with either).
Open file and create a new record.
Click in container field and choose Audio option.
Record some audio.
At this point you can either commit the record or just click the new record button
Repeat several times.
The only audio file that has worked is the first one.

Expected result

Should record audio correctly on each record.

Actual result

Only records audio for first record and create a blank file thereafter.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

The only error that shows is when you try and play back any recordings after the first one. In which case you just get the file name and size on the screen (not an actual error message)


If you play the audio after you've recorded it and then record again it seems to work.
