    Have you checked to see when the apps were last updated? It's possible that they're not compatible with the latest iOS versions. I have several apps like this, myself. The videos haven't played since the iOS 7 update in 2013. The videos will, however, play on my iPad 1 which is on iOS 5.1.1.

    Hi,
    Yes I've checked. It's the brand new Angry Birds Stella Pop. My friend is on IOS 7 and has no problem playing the in-app videos when using my broadband, yet I'm on IOS 8.4 and can't. The videos are totally skipped on my iPad. it doesn't try and display them at all. It's very weird. Thanks for your help, maybe I should try a gaming forum?

    Have you tried using WiFi at another location to see if the problem persists or is limited to your home WiFi?

    No, as I haven't had the opportunity, but I will be able to try it in a week's time when I will be at a different location, use a different broadband and compare it with a friend there who has an iPad who has no problems playing videos.
    I will have to leave it till then.
    Thanks.

    As a side note, just in case it wasn't clear, the "Show All Videos" switch in Settings > Videos only affects videos that you purchase in iTunes. It has no affect on videos in any other app, store, website, etc.

    All it does is show all videos purchased in iTunes, whether they are downloaded to he iPad or not. When the switch is off, only videos stored locally (in the Videos app) are shown.

    Also, I'd check the setting for Angry Birds Stella. It's possible it has an option to turn off in-app videos, for those who don't want to use up their bandwidth on extras. And make sure you are actually on the wi-fi. It might block videos if it detects you are on cellular.

    That's all I can think of.
