blank/black slides on ipad
Jun 15, 2012
I've got a course where I've inserted screen recordings (mp4) onto the slides. There are 12 slides total with videos of various lengths. The largest published video is just under 10mb.. The smallest is about 180k.
After the first slide plays fine, the rest go black.
From there using the next button or menu results in intermittent playing, but mostly black slides.
The Flash version works fine. Just the ipad version is not working right. I've tried in Safari and Dolphin on the ipad and same results.

The first slide plays fine for me, but the next two go black and then it's hit or miss after that.
Anyone else experience this?
Update1 - I've noticed that videos that do play will display the quicktime logo for a second or two before the video starts.
Update2 - Not sure if this is a bug or related to the playback problem, but in this version 'video controls enabled' I'm able to control the video playback separate from the seek bar. For example, i can pause the slide at 50% through and then control the video playback independently with the video controls.
Or, should the video not start playing right away and the seek bar has already started then i pres the play button on the video controls. Now, the seek bar is ahead of the video playhead and will jump to the next slide (set automatically) before the video is complete.
Update 3 - There definitely seems to be a syncing problem with video and the main playhead/timeline. I've tested in both safari and dolphin and the same syncing problem occurs. I wonder if this is the underlying problem ppl have been experiencing w/ video playback on the ipad.
