I haven't encountered that error but a quick google search took me to an article on StackOverflow where they suggest that it is possible that there is no file at that URL. You might want to add an NSLog statement to see the value of the fileUrl variable and check to see if there is a valid file and URL.

Hello Amit and thanks for the answer. I have read a lot of article, most of us from stackoverflow before asking here. And I put NSLog so i would be able to read the url. And it seemed to be OK. But, actually, shame on me, it wasn't correct, there was an over space caracter at the end. Now it rules.

Thanks again.

Glad you were able to resolve the bug. When debugging, NSLog and setting breakpoints are some of your best tools as a developer.

Hey guys! Could anybody help? It just won't playback!

PFFile *videoFile = [self.selectedMessage objectForKey:@"file"]; NSURL *fileUrl = [NSURL URLWithString:videoFile.url]; self.moviePlayer.contentURL = fileUrl; [self.moviePlayer prepareToPlay];

    // Add it to the view controller
    [self.view addSubview:self.moviePlayer.view];
    [self.moviePlayer setFullscreen:YES animated:YES];
    [self.moviePlayer play];
