Perfomance issue in Iphone,iPad and Android

Apr 27, 2018

Hi Team,

We are facing lots of performance and loading issue in iPad and iPhone and Android devices.

We are able to find the issue in 10MBs with IOS latest version.

The course contain 75 pages and 81 videos and 81+ audios

Can someone please tell us is the issue because of heavy audios and videos.

Thanks for confirming, Sinchu.  Like Leslie mentioned, that is a lot of media for mobile devices to handle.  The responsiveness of the content in mobile browsers will generally be slower than desktop browsers. The device version that you're using can also impact mobile browsers' performance. New models have more memory, which means your HTML5 content may be slower to respond in older models.

Is the performance issue related to the time it takes to load the content?  Are you seeing crashing of the content?

Thanks for that detail, Sinchu.  We are looking into how some courses are crashing on mobile devices.  I'm going to connect this discussion to our report.

To help us test, if you'd like to share that .story file with us, you can upload it here.  Also, let me know if you're using any special fonts.  They can impact the overall memory needed to load the output, so that's a good clue.  Thanks again!

Hi Cystal,

Yes we have used the CAlibri fonts, 

I have done detailed debugging and deleted some of the videos and audios then i could see the performance is much better.

Can you please confirm Is storyline is using any player to launch the videos/audios? i think the media player is causing the issue, the way auto play function is programmed for audio is crashing sometimes and its slow down the performance. 

Try this and you will be able to find the issue in desktop browser also.

Create a storyline file with 5 pages and include a lengthy audio(1 Hour Audio) in slide 3 and publish it for SCORM cloud and try to test the build.

Reproduce the “out of memory” crash:

1. Close all Chrome instances (validate this has happened with task manager).
2. Launch the training course 
3. Quickly click “Next” twice to advance from the second to the third slide.
4. Chrome will then try to allocate more than 2GB of RAM inside that single process and crash. Please see the attached image for reference.
