I think you have mistakenly done wrong in coding of this extension that’s why I m getting error while exporting the app…
Can you check what’s the problem behind the error…and can you solve the problem of progress slider and forward and backward buttons disable problem only when using MKV format movie but when I use MP4 format movie it works fine…
If you can solve the problem so fix it or provide a solution…:grinning:

There is a new block in the UI extension called OnVisibilityChanged You can use that to show or hide a custom title label.

You can use my Relative View extension to overlap that label onto the player.

As I mentioned earlier, its not a bug in the player. The issue is that player can’t process the codecs in that mkv file. You can convert it to supported codes using ffmpeg library.

And I have told you another problem is that I have imported your provided aia in both mit apo Inventor and kodular but when I tried to export apk it can’t export I have attached a screenshot before, the error cames in both builders…
