ioslaunch.html missing?

Up until recently a published program would produce a set of files to run itself including a mobile file called ioslaunch.html. My recent publications are not including this file. Does anyone know why?

about my content: I am taking a fairly large webinar recording and encapsulating it in an articulate shell to run within a custom LMS. This has been working up until recently, or maybe I hadn't tried it on an iPad...I've just noticed this and a number of other webinars our company has created don't include the ioslaunch.html file after publishing. Should I split this one file into 2 or more to generate this file?

 

Puzzled,

Ok, from what I gather it looks like amplaunch.html is replacing ioslaunch.html? We have a custom LMS that uses story.php to launch the storyline program. It's really just the same file as  story.html with some include statements at the top, hence a .php file.

This has allowed the program to be launched via the articulate player on an iPad however now there is no sound.

Hi George,

Are you publishing with the Mobile player selected or just the HTML5 output? Those two files would be referring to different ways of launching the content - in that order. So you may just need to unselect the option for the mobile player and advise users to access the content within a supported browser such as mobile Safari on iOS.

Hi Ashley,
I have taken the leap and used the html5 story file as my source. Since is runs nicely on iPads without the extra overhead of the articulate app it makes sense for our needs. Our audience is comprised of nurses, doctors and health care professionals. It seems their main tool these days are iPads so eliminating the sometimes, well most times for this crowd, confusing use of the articulate app to run our programs is a win for us. Hopefully our desktop and laptop users have versions of browsers that are html5 compliant…

Thanks for your response,

Sincerely,

Hi George,

Did you look at unchecking the Articulate Mobile Player option within your publish settings? If you don't use that option and point to the story.html file then users who go to access on a mobile device should be presented with the HTML5 output automatically. And those who do access it in a browser without Flash will also be presented with the HTMl5 output - and you'll  just want to ensure that they're viewing it in a supported browser.
