Bryan Von Deylen:
Thank you for your post.
The video won't play in the Layout of FileMaker Go 12. You need to tap the movie file in the Container field, and then tap "View" to view the movie in full screen mode.
Let me know if you need additional clarification.
That is the problem. When I view the layout in FileMaker GO 12 on the iPad and tap the movie file, there is no button that gets displayed.
When I try on the iPhone, I get the button, but NOT on the iPad 2.
So, I think there is a BUG in FileMaker GO 12.0.6, since NO buttons display when I tap the container field on the iPad.
It happens when I have the container field that would fill the iPad screen. When I tap on the container field, no buttons display.
I experiemented with a different layout, and set the layout to view multiple records. I have the container field smaller so several records can be displayed at the same time. Now when I click on the container field, I do see the buttons.
Doesn't help for the solution I am working on though, where autistic kids will be looking at directions based on Photos and Videos they need to watch on the iPad. I need the Photos and Videos to be full screen. I would really like the video to auto play (like on the MacBook), without the need to TAP the container field, then TAP a button to play…
Bryan Von Deylen:
If the Container field is larger than the screen, then you won't immediately see the Actions window to select "View". You would need to tap the field and scroll right, for the "View" option to appear. As you discovered, once the Container field is smaller than the screen width/height, then the option is displayed.
