Offhand, how are your container fields stored? Have you tried switching storage to internal as a test? If it's external are they mapped to the filemaker data folders?
If they are mapped somewhere that is inaccessible from the WAN, I would see this as an issue.
The storage is set as per default, will take a look - all images and pdfs work ok?
Sounds like it's not storage then. Didn't know you were using the container for anything other than video.
You did set the container on the layout for interactive content and auto-play, correct?
Yup auto play no but for interactive content yes.
As i say it shows the icon yet does not stream unless on the lan. I wondered if i had to specify something?
Ok Mike, its got weird,
No changes made whatsoever, I tried it on my wifes iPad and it played? Went
back to my iPad and it played? Both accessed using the external access (as
opposed to LAN)?

Ok so here we are, this morning i took out a subscription to worldcloud (free for 30 days to trial it) This seems to have fixed it? it must be due to the ability to stream and my server with its pawltry 4gb of ram could not cope?
Mike your response was appreciated and very helpful so thankyou.
I don't want to peg it at that, but it could be your local server's resources. That would make sense for a "spinning wheel". The only sure way would be to leave it spinning to see if it ever started playing.
Good to hear you have a host that is working.
