Topic: iPad / iPhone - flickering images / navigation buttons

hello,

I have used Soundslides quiet a bit on my website:
    http://www.worx.tv/
and all slideshows are made with the new iOS_html5 shell
that really does a wonderful job ... but
on my iPad as well as on my iPhone the transition (crossfade, 1sec) seems to flicker quiet a bit ... ???

AND
can you tell me how I can make the navigation line / buttons a bit bigger
so it works somehow better on these handheld devices ...
especially on the phone the play/stop and so on buttons are very very small !!!

thxxxxxx for help   ... :-)) Gerald

Re: iPad / iPhone - flickering images / navigation buttons

We recently discovered a minor bug in the javascript file that can sometimes cause the flashing effect. Please download the ZIP file from this URL:

http://media.soundslides.com/files/foru … des.js.zip

Once you have downloaded, unzip the file on your computer and replace the JavaScript file named "soundslides.js" in the "_files" folder inside the slide show's "publish_to_web" folder.

If that works for you, you can also replace the "soundslides.js" file in your "iOS_html5" shell in the Soundslides application folder, which will correct this issue for all future exported slideshows.

We will incorporate this fix into the next minor release. We could only duplicate this issue for a slide show with hard cuts.
Please let me know if you have any other issues.

As far as changing the size of the player controls, this is not possible at this time.

hi Jonathan,

Austria again ...
can you 'autostart' the slideshow for the non flash version ... on iPad / iPhone ... ???
that be really great as buttons are so small ... and user often don't figure out
just to click the first image to start the show ...

Unfortunately Apple has blocked autoplay for security reasons.

As a follow-up, I wanted to note that the fix in the .js file recommended in this thread was applied to the main Soundslides and Soundslides Plus releases shortly after.
