No video in Piepmatz under OS

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): 100% on my device
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product):
HARDWARE (Jolla1, Tablet, XA2,…): XA2
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): Yes


since updating to, the Piepmatz twitter client can’t show videos anymore. It seems to load on click (some activity showing), but no video plays. The image remains still.



  1. take your XA2
  2. update to
  3. install Piepmatz twitter client
  4. uninstall and re install Piepmatz twitter client
  5. try pkcon refresh / pkon update


Piepmatz should be playing videos, as it did under OS 3.3


Piepmatz does not play any videos in twitter

Did you contact the developer?

I wrote him on Openrepos and then I felt I’d like to know if I am the only one. No anwer from him, yet. But thank you, I’ve just sent him a eMail. It could be a App problem, or a OS problem, after all.

Ok, great.

I don’t think it makes much sense reporting here these kind of bugs from third party apps. If the dev detects a problem with the OS, I guess he will make a bug report here.

yes, true…
If this is a bug from a third party app, then o.k… What if it’s a bug in the OS, or within the ecosystem? Not being a dev - I just happen to experience something not working as it should, and, so far, this seems to be a solitary issue happening on my phone only and not on many others.
I am not able (yet) to analyze where this bug might be triggered from, and this is why I ask the community. Soemone might know.

The dev will find out and report it here with a better description of the problem.

Yeah, devs do not get email or other notification on comments on Openrepos unfortunately. So unless they check regularly they might miss a comment.

It’s probably better to create an issue at github if you have an account:

he has put his email in the ‘about Piepmatz’ dialog, so let’s see.

with update to, Piepmatz twitter client plays videos correctly again :wink:
