YouTube video link working in iPad but not Android

I am streamining a video from YouTube via a regular web link. It all works fine on the iPad but when I export my verticals to the Android Tablet, and review, the video window pops up as a grey window and no video plays.

I`ve got the same problem, and must say it is very frustrating.

I have decided to build an Android app (and pay extra), becouse even in Mag+ release 3.1, it was said that it "Can play embedded YouTube clips".  http://support.magplus.com/entries/21297116-release-3-1

I have experimented a lot, and still don`t know how to do it nicely. 

When I simply link to yt in embedded browser, it shows the video, but the fullscreen option is not available. I can play the video, but even when I close the window, I can still hear video playing in the background.

Mag+ Support, please help. I suspect it is a webview problem, but I am not sure. All I want to do is to embed my youtube video, just like it is embeded on any website and finish the project.

Best,

Hi Jarek,

Is it possible to send us your mib file so we can test it?

Hi Anders,

here is the link to my test mib https://dl.dropbox.com/u/54942720/kiwi.android.1.mib

I have included 3 cases - direct link to youtube video, link to a page with embedded videos and streaming. None of those works well on Android tablet, and there is no full screen option. Please have a look. 

I use iPad template, but I tested it with Android template and had the same result.

Thank you for your help,

Regards,

Hi Jarek,

Yes, unfortunately it is not be possible to use this kind of video in Android yet. We are hoping to be able to implement it in the future.

Sorry for your trouble.
