"Powered by FileRun" white label completely blocks video player controls

EmilyLove 10 months ago updated by Vlad R 9 months ago 8

The "Powered by FileRun" white label, which is present in the free version of the product, has this issue where an invisible box covers up a shared file's video controls. This prevents users from seeking on Desktops and prevents playing, seeking, casting, or changing video playback speed on mobile. On mobile, this basically completely cripples the video player.

Unfortunately, on mobile, unless you watch a video in fullscreen mode, there is no way to manually scrub (with the seek bar), as it is completely obscured by the "Powered by FileRun" white label. I would assume this is a way to increase the website's canvas size to make room for the white label below the video controls, without obscuring the controls, but I'm not smart enough to figure this out.

I'm on iOS btw (both iPad and iPhone were tested here)

the label is also huge on Android, covering controls.

This will be fixed with the update that will be released in a couple of days.

Weird... I thought I posted a workaround for this but I must have forgotten to post it. My bad 🤷‍♀️

Anywho, until this gets fixed, you can use .. to workaround this.

You haven't, I removed it myself. You are teaching people how to remove the one thing that might contribute towards me getting paid for my work on the software you are enjoying. So as you can understand, I have to make sure this can't be done. Or at least, not easy ;)

I like promoting this software. It's fantastic. That bar was a bit oversized. I really have no need for trickery to remove it completely.

just a smaller and/or not covering buttons :)

It will get fixed very shortly, it is not intended as an obstacle :)

Fixed

A FileRun update that fixes this is now ready to be applied from the control panel of your installation.
