  • On 12 March the apidocs were updated with the pause/resume information in master on github, so I am not sure why it hasn't been published yet. Apparently, the play() method is used to resume a video. See VideoPlayer.tdoc

    • I don't see the resume information, and play isn't resuming the video for me.

  • Not sure how you're coding it but .play() does resume a paused video.

    Here's how I am doing it:

    function VideoPlayback(win) {
        var self = this;
        this.win = win;
        this.activeMovie = null;
        this.isPaused = false;
        this.draw = function () {
            self.activeMovie = Ti.Media.createVideoPlayer({
                url: 'sample.mov'
            self.playPauseButton = Ti.UI.createButton({
                backgroundImage: 'pause.png'
            self.playPauseButton.addEventListener('click', function (e) {
                if (!self.isPaused) {
                    self.playPauseButton.backgroundImage = 'play.png';
                } else {
                    self.playPauseButton.backgroundImage = 'pause.png';
                self.isPaused =! self.isPaused;
    var vid = new VideoPlayback(Ti.UI.currentWindow);
