Issue with playing video in webview

I'm building a webview to play video in some website like: youtube, dailymotion,... The problem is when I press play button, it shows "Media Error: This media file is of an unsupported type or could not be loaded. It can not be played."

Please help me with this problem.

Thanks.

Re: Issue with playing video in webview

Are you using the simulator? The simulator does not support video playback:

 
180909

While the simulator supports audio, it does not support video editing, playback, video recording or local playback of any streaming service.

Cascades doesn't support video playback in a web view at this time :/

Re: Issue with playing video in webview

Wow this is exremely dissapointing. Will be huge pain for users to have to open browser just to watch video, instead of within the app.

 

Hope this gets fixed pronto.

This is very dissapointing. The AIR SDK supports video and flash in QNXStageWebView, so I just assumed it would work in Cascades too.
