Can I load a video from an iPad locally instead of streaming from web?

0 votes
Is it possible to load a video locally from an iPad instead of streaming from a server? I've got a simple iPad web app that works fine except it pauses every now and then. I don't want to lower quality.

Also, is there a way after the video is played to go back to a previous object state?

I have heard of cases where offline caching (found in the Advanced section of the in5 dialog) works for video on the iPad.

That would be the only way, unless you convert your content to a mobile app (using something like PhoneGap or the Baker Framework), but that would require going through the App Store.

Re: action after video is played. In theory, you could write some JavaScript to do this and attach it to your output.
