Players not working in iOS 8.4.1
« on: September 04, 2015, 01:07:05 am »
Has anyone experienced podcasts not playing in iOS 8? Neither my iPhone 6 nor my iPad will now play some of my mp3 or m4a podcasts using either MediaElement.js or HTML5 audio player. All plugins except Blubrry have been deactivated and WP is the latest. WiFi is strong (right next to router!) and the same files play fine on my Mac via Chrome. Results same on iOS with both Safari and Chrome.

Oddly, I've only had a complaint from one listener that he can't access the shows via streaming, although all will download.

H-E-L-P, anyone? :-)

I just tested my own podcast site on my iPad Mini running iOS 8.4.1 and the media player for the most recent episode is working fine.

If you'd like, you can post a URL to your site so we can take a look and see if anything out of the ordinary is going on. Unfortunately, sometimes these types of anomalies occur with mobile devices and there's not always a good explanation as to why.
