MoviePlayer is always visible

Hi,
OS Sierra
Xojo 17 2.1
A movieplayer object is always visible, even if setting MoviePlayer1.visible = false and refreshing it or its window.
The only way to make it disappear is to close it (or to move it outside the window).

In older version of Xojo (at least 16 1.1), setting MoviePlayer1.visible = false, it would disappear.

Any suggestion? Or is it a bug?
Thank you.

Well, at one point they switched to AVFoundation framework.

Now please fill a feedback case so this is not forgotten.

For the timebeing we have a few functions in MBS Plugins:

You can get the layer object there and set hidden property to true.

(sorry for the spelling error in the title in feedback “movieplayer cannot be MAKE invisible” > “made”)

Resize and move it to minus values, at least that’s what I did to hide it. Although you can also use a PagePanel to hide it.

At present I worked around the problem with a PagePanel; but I’ll certainly try your resize/move suggestion and see what works best in my app.
Thank you.

This was already reported - my case feedback://showreport?report_id=45076
I use the following to “Turn Off” a movie

#if TargetMacOS then MoviePlayer1.Left=-10000 MoviePlayer1.Top=-10000 #endif MoviePlayer1.Visible=false MoviePlayer1.Stop
