Video broken on HTML5 iPad output
Bit of an unusual one here, quite niche but hopefully some of you out there will be able to help :-).
Building an iPad app through storyline. Pushing it through Xcode to make it a bespoke iPad app, not that that is relevant to the issue mind.
Basically, the client requires the Launch Screen to be removed. So, two ways of doing this in both SL 1 and SL 2.
SL 1 method is add a line of JS to the player_compiled.js file stop the launch screen appearing.
SL 2 method is adding some code at the end of the story_html5.html.
Both these methods work great! However they have the following negative effects.
There are transparent shapes on slides, which lose their transparency and turn solid. The videos do not work.
Both these errors are sporadic. If you cycle back and forth through the course the transparent shapes become transparent and sometimes the videos work. So it is not a open and shut case. It seems to occur on each page load but in the initial instance they do not work.
I have tried playing with the videos, giving them auto play triggers, making the user click to play them, attaching seekbars, nothing seems to work consistently and it continues to be sporadic. Same goes for the transparent shapes. I have toyed with the transparency, inserted them as images, even replaced whole sections of them with ones which don't change sporadically. All of this to no avail.
Any ideas guys? Thanks
