IPad issues (again!!!!!)
Wednesday, October 18 2017 @ 04:24 PM CDT

Does anyone else use an iPad for MJ.

I used to have a little play button below the song picture but it's not there anymore.

I have no idea where the play button is but by some fluke, and lots of tapping around the picture, I eventually started Vicdiesel's latest (and very good it is too) but I've been unable to get any other songs to play.

Maybe the latest iOS doesn't like MJ (or the other way round).

Any ideas?

Cheers

Dick

I'm viewing on an iPad iOS 9.3.5 and can still access the play/pause button on the song pages.

If the player is flash-based it may not display in newer versions of Safari. I noticed that iComps provides an optional html5 player, likely to address this issue.

Maybe try downloading a different browser?

Or hit the D/L button on the right as an alternative way to listen. (H/T daugrin)

Nope. Tried it with Firefox and Chrome. Apparently ios 11 doesn't play well with the site's player. Frown

Thanks chaps.

I think Joe is right, ios 11 is not happy with MJ's player.

D/L is a way around it but a bit of a pain, especially on a slow connection. Not that I have a slow connection but I often use the ipad when I am on flaky connections.

First world problems eh?

Work around for playing.

My latest song is here:
http://macjams.com/song/83593

To listen to it on iOS, go here:
http://macjams.com/lab/music/83593.mp3

Well, after trying it, this trick might not work anymore. :/

Well it just worked for me. I wish I'd known about this trick yesterday when I tried to show MacJams to a friend of mine and we couldn't play any tunes on her Android phone...

Try the Puffin web browser (available from the App store) which seems to handle Flash (unlike Safari).
