I just compiled a small app that uses at53 video player and I'm getting error JSON .h file not found, AT53_video_player.m

Any way out of this problem yet?

That plugin was removed form the market by the developer and has since not been updated to work with 4.x.x by that developer.

Could you point me to a way to play video mp4 files please? They reside on a web site I have for my business. Thanks.

That's disappointing. This is a medical app and I've included videos to teach docs how to do certain examinations. It still seems to work on my current iPhone7 with iOS 10 but I wanted to update the code since Apple has already taken down two of my apps for not updating and I worry out this one being next on their hit list. If this situation changes please let me know.

Sure thing, possibly reach out to the original plugin developer and ask him/her to update the plugin.

On iOS, you can play a video in the Custom URL plugin. It doesn't work for Android, though.

@stevek

I haven't seen that plugin in literally years but can tell you that ANY plugin that references the JSON.h file won't work. The third party JSON package that was originally included in all BT projects is no longer included. Think "legal reasons."

All the JSON parsing is now done with native Objective C (no need for a third party library). Not sure if that's helpful or not but for sure you'll want to remove those JSON.h references.

@stevek

i got AT53_video_player to work.

i had the json error, then went to AT53_video_player.m

commented 3 lines of code:
//#import "JSON.h"

//if([[BT_strings getJsonPropertyValue:self.screenData.jsonVars nameOfProperty:@"videoImageFileName" defaultValue:@""] length] > 3){

//plugintester_appDelegate *appDelegate = (plugintester_appDelegate *) [[UIApplication sharedApplication] delegate];

not sure what im doing but it worked and still plays the video i link in the control panel.....

I'll try to use this for Android since Susan's recommendation about Custom URLs worked like a charm.

im not sure what damage it will do. lines of code are usually there for a reason ;)

especially one of them because its an IF statement. so it will just execute anyway now rather than on a certain criteria....

good luck

That if statement doesn't look like it should be commented out.

The appdelegate, yes.
The json.h, yes.

iOS is OK
Android, i cannot open/view an Excel or Word Doc from a URL using the BT Word Doc/Excel Doc Standard screens/plugin

files are on my web hosting and display ok on iOS simulator and device

on android device (nexus 6) i get open or download document (open greyed out). choose to download, then can select the open option > "Unable to open the document - the file isn't available offline. Make the file 'available offline' in the files options menu"

my phone is online as im receiving all of my app updates via refreshes and google is working.

Just can't get YouTube Streamer plug-in to work with BT4

On the screen page it says : "This plugin requires you to add the MediaPlayer framework to your project, which is included by default in BT 3.0 Core Projects"

Is the MediaPlayer framework included in BT 4 Projects?
Or is it just that the plugin won't work with BT4 - this is the log:

I'm having the error


Folder/BT_Plugins/bt_screen_pdfDoc/BT_screen_pdfDoc.m:44:9: 'BT_viewControllerManager.h' file not found

I did not see the pdf plugin I used listed anymore.

I've been a paying member since 2013. I missed my renewal by 2 days in February, and it wiped out how many years I've actually supported this site. It shows 2017 but it should be 2013.
Are other people having issues with the PDF plug-in?

Any plans to update the Advanced Search plugin by chris1? I use it in all of my apps.

One app has ~300 screens... search screen used to load in about one second, now takes > 10 seconds after most recent BT update.
