I wonder if it is the mix between retina and non-retina screens which is causing the problem. I notice Mattias mentioned he couldn't reproduce with two retina screens, but both you and graham have a mixed setup? Warmest Regards, Mark. P.S. There's clearly a problem here in the engine if hit

Thanks Mark for wading in. Well, it might be the mixture of screens - in fact I think that may well be it, because I have another development configuration with a non-Retina iMac and a similar monitor to the one I’ve described, and I have never seen a problem. Sadly, that’s about 1000 km South

IIRC, the engine passes 'proper urls' straight through to the OS framework - so if the URL plays in a browser then it should probably work in the engine. If it doesn't, but does in a browser then you could try using a browser widget instead of a player? Mark. Sent from my iPhone > On 13 Jan

I don't think this is particularly complicated; it is rather like the fact that you can have a standalone on a desktop system called something (e.g. "XXX") but when the standalone opens it can have something else on its title bar (e.g. "Oh, you expected XXX"). Richmond. On 14/1/2018 8:24
