Hi, when I try this:

viv.LoadVideoUrl(lnk)
viv.Play

The VideoView is Black, the duration is 0, I think that the vv couldn't play the video ("https"), this problem I have too in the B4A with the same file "https", but in B4A i was solved with open the video in an external App, with Intent.

Android:

Dim i As Intent
i.Initialize(i.ACTION_VIEW,lnk)
i.SetType("video/*")
StartActivity(i)

iOS ??? How can I open the link Video in an Explorer or External VideoPlayer ?

Intent in iOS ??

Complete example that plays a video file that was added to the Files tab:
B4X:
Sub Process_Globals
   Public App As Application
   Public NavControl As NavigationController
   Private Page1 As Page
   Private vv As VideoView
End Sub

Private Sub Application_Start (Nav As NavigationController)
   NavControl = Nav
   Page1.Initialize("Page1")
   Page1.Title = "Page 1"
   Page1.RootPanel.Color = Colors.White
   NavControl.ShowPage(Page1)
   vv.Initialize("vv")
   Page1.RootPanel.AddView(vv.View, 0, 0, 300, 300)
   vv.LoadVideo(File.DirAssets, "HelloWorld.mp4")
   vv.Play
End Sub

Hi, Erel

It works great with internal video
It doesn't work with url video
The video viewer gets all black, does not show the controls and the Ready event is not firing.
I just wanted to play a youtube video, Could that be the cause?
