Hi all here my question, hope someone can help me.
I have a stream of bytes that represents a video file.
I'd like reproduce this with a AVPlayerViewController.
So this what I do (with no luck):
I can see the Avplayercontroller but with the play icon barred and stream video doesn't start.
I tried this on simulator and if I navigate to the documents folder I can see the created file, plus if I get this file to the Mac I can play it, plus if I put the file in the simulator (drag it to simulator) the file goes in the video folder of the gallery and from here I can play the video too.
var videoData = NSData.FromUrl(new NSUrl("path of a video")); //the path here can be a path to a video on the camera roll Console.WriteLine(document.FilePath); string documentsPath = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal); string localFilename = "test.MOV"; //same if I save the file as .mp4 string localPath = Path.Combine(documentsPath, localFilename); File.WriteAllBytes(localPath, videoData.ToArray()); Console.WriteLine(localPath); NSUrl url = new NSUrl(localPath); AVPlayer player = new AVPlayer(url); playerController = new AVPlayerViewController(); playerController.Player = player; PresentViewController(playerController, true, null);
