unable to find a video that I found online inthe Android app

by maicod » Tue Feb 09, 2016 1:24 am

on my windows pc in a browser through google I discovered this video: https://eyes.kolor.com/video/f27395767c ... 95701e63b9

I'd like to play it in the Kolor Eyes Android app and tried several ways BUT:

-when loading the url in a browser on my phone (through QR code) and clicking the ... and then click on 'play video in application' it opens the Kolor Eyes app but gives a http error message (I have the latest version of the app)

-In the Android app why is there not search for videos option so I can find the train video via that method ?

-under windows in a browser why can't I just add the video to my favorites and then look the favorites back up in the android app ?

NOTE: I have succesfully registered for the Kolor Eyes website and managed to also login in the app with these credentials

There is no search feature on any of the apps as of yet, nor any sort of favourites feature in Kolor Eyes hosting in general unfortunately.

Can you not play the video in the browser? You will get the same features as the app, without the visible logos that the app has...

What is the error message you got when trying to open in the app, precisely? I was able to open the video following your workflow.
On iOS opening a video in the app from the website doesn't work, but on Android it does (should).

Hi Annis, thats sad to hear. I guess the search and favoriting features will be good candidates for the next app update ?

with latest firefox for android I only see a picture of the video and on it is the '...' symbol and when I click on that it asks if I want to play the video in the app. When I click that button it loads the Kolor Eyes app and gives the http error.

In latest chrome for android there is no http error but the Kolor Eyes app keeps showing a player screen with a black content

I don't wanna play the video on my PC because I like to play the video on my phone when its inside my 'google cardboard' glasses.

the error is 'Invalid URL format'. I made a video to show your what happens. See https://youtu.be/rj_ewnIqzbI

(please play it full screen to see the top of the vertical mobile phone screen)
