make sure your slashes are all correct. on iOS and desktop are forgiving with double// in URLs; but android is not.. .this bit me many times
So If you have path setters here and there, one needs to follow some convention, either leave folder string *always* with no closing slash and all appended url strings begin with a slash.. I started that way but this was always confusing to me because on web / means "from DOCROOT" so slowly I am refactoring all these to
return specialFolderPath("documents") & "/assets/"
then in any module we use
play sound (path_Assets() & "bells-whistles/ding.mp3") because this is "relative" # very subjective..
So what started failing on Android -- really hard to debug!
where instances of
play sound (path_Assets() & "/bells-whistles/ding.mp3")
because these would work on Mac desktop and only fail on Android so you are beating your head "what is wrong."

I’m having a problem loading a local file on Android in the Browser Widget in LC 8.1.5. I am experiencing what is described in bug 19036. But, bug 19036’s status is “Resolved” in version 8.0.0. So, is something else up? Anyone have any insight?
