a problem about playing video on iPhone device

Kazuhiro shared this problem 4 years ago


I have a problem about playing video on iPhone device. What I would like to do is to play a video file (.flv or streaming video like youtube) on iPhone device (not simulator).

I could see streaming video on prototyper simulator followed by the post "https://www.justinmind.com/community...". And then I exported it to HTML, copied the HTML to my iPhone, played it using HTML viewer app 'ProtoSee'. It was succeeded to play HTML but the streaming video couldn't be displayed.

I'm sorry but I have no idea of what is wrong with the HTML viewer or anything else.

In the other way, I succeeded playing flash video (.swf) using web > HTML > Flash feature on prototyper simulator, but the flash video on exported HTML could't be played on iPhone device using 'ProtoSee'.

Justinmind prototyper is a really good tool but if video feature is available on real device, it will be very helpful for us. If either streaming video issue or flash video issue is solved, it is really appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Kazuhiro,

First of all, you have now available for both android and iOS an app in the app stores. It's called Justinmind and it makes simulating on device much easier. When prototyping in version 6.0 click on view on device and you will find out how it works. You will have to log in with your usernote username and password.

To reproduce video here is how I managed to make it work with vimeo and youtube:

1) drag the HTML widget (from the Web widget library),

2) erase the contents in the HTML fiel in the properties panel,

3) go to youtube, vimeo... and look for the insert code (looks something like this: <iframe width="560" [...] </iframe>)

4) paste this code in the HTML field from step 2

5) change the width and height if you need/want to

Please let me know if this works.

And iOS doesn't run flash so nothing we can do about that.

If you want to embed a video you downloaded, you can create a website with the video and use the widget HTML Website to import that. But I believe uploading to either youtube or vimeo is easier.




Hi Marc,

Thank you for quick reply. Actually, I found the reason why the video streaming doesn't work, and now it works. The problem happens when the filename of HTML, which has iframe tag, has Japanese characters. In the other way, I also found how to have a flash video file locally.

Thank you, again.
