Not sure what you mean by "an existing app" but my test app uses mobileControlCreate to set up
a mobile player. When it accesses the video from my server, it's all black with no video or
audio, and the nonexistent playback quits a few seconds in.
I'm not sure whether these videos were created with streaming in mind. I vaguely remember we
used to need to set a "streaming" checkbox when creating a video. Is that still required?
