Video player issues since upgrade
Hi there. Love the app and always excited when a new update lands. Thought I’d report a few findings.
There now appears to be two different video players - the ‘old’ player (black frame) and a new player that shipped with 2.4.1 (white frame, filmstrip at bottom).
Video playback randomly seems to select one of these two players, and I’m not sure why. Perhaps based on file format?
The new player lacks a skip feature, and does not automatically progress to the next video file. For instance, when playing music videos, it stops at the end of each ‘track’ and you need to click back and select the next file manually (assuming you know what the next file is).
Also, when you click on a video file to play it, it will sometimes take up to 40 seconds to load the file (which is small). The app locks up and you are left staring at the spinner. On many times, I forced quit the app, thinking it had frozen, but I have now worked out it is just ‘thinking’.
Is there a way to configure the app to only use the new player?
I am on Aloha 2.4.1, iOS 11.3.1 on iPad Pro (large format)
