Ratings and Reviews
Good supplement to lessons, some bugs...
I have really enjoyed using this app to find images and video clips to use with my lessons, but I did want to point out that the app crashed every time I search “Jesus” under Images. Though if I search under Video or Music, then click over to Images, I can then load the search results.
Movie player window
I really love the possibilities of this app, downloading movies , making playlists, etc. however, when you go to play a movie, the floating window that comes up ( and in full screen mode) is very temperamental. It is so sensitive that if you go to hit touch anything ( eg pause or rewind, etc) the app thinks you want to stop watching that particular video and closes the window. You are left to go start the movie over...it doesn’t kick back up where you left off.
This is painful if watching a long movie and wanting to pause or if children accidentally touch the screen - the movie goes away and you are back on the browse screen. Starting the movie over and fast forwarding is a nightmare since it is so sensitive and often jumps you back to the browse window as well.
If you could just fix this one issue this app would be great! It shouldn’t be something sensitive and maybe ask if you want to end the movie. It would be lovely to have it also ask if you want to pick up where you left off.
Video download is hit-or-miss
Several times, I am able to find a video and play it OK, but if I then try to download it for offline playing then it fails and tells me to check my internet connection, even though it’s working 100% for every other application, and even for the Gospel Media app in all other cases
I specifically need to be able to download so that during a Sunday School lesson I don’t have to rely on the meetinghouse Internet, which can be slow and cause playback issues when streaming.
The Gospel Media app doesn’t give me any further details of why it won’t download. It just doesn’t ! This is incredible frustrating. It seems that the problem occurs with some videos, but not others. This suggests maybe a problem with the URL that’s being used “behind the scenes”. Strangely, streaming playback always seems to work. Double frustration !
If I go to the Media Library website, I can watch the videos e.g. in Chrome, and I can download the videos by copying the URL to VLC Player. But really, I shouldn’t have to use this “hack” !
