No audio playback on iOS devices

When I’ve had this problem, it’s because I didn’t pay attention to the name of the sounds files… I’m pretty sure iOS is case sensitive. I called a name without matching case. I can’t remember if the sounds played on the simulator and then failed on the device like you stated… just a thought.

be well,

It doesn’t seem to matter if I use a simple ‘play’ command or the ‘mobilePlaySoundOnChannel’ command. I’m on Mac Yosemite 10.10.5, and I’ve tried building with LC 7.1.1, 7.1.2 RC2, and 8.0DP14. I’ve tried it on iOS 9.2  and 8.3 on several different iOS devices.
