    Mediaplayer should default to using the speaker for audio output even if the Ring/Silent switch on an iPhone is in the silence position.

    If you want to make it selectable that is ok as long as the default is to ignore the switch. I think most if not all apps ignore the switch when using the mediaplayer function.

    (Sorry, don't see a way to edit out the second "should" in title)

    This is not a bug. At most it is a feature request.

    Anyway it is possible to implement it, start a new thread in the questions forum and I'll explain how it can be done.

    I think most people would not expect the sound to not play just because the phone ringer was silenced. But I will start the thread.
