Re: no sound


Hi Oscar - welcome to our Community!

I'm sorry to hear about your mobile previewing issue - let's see what could be going wrong now!

At first, could you provide me with the following information so I can troubleshoot?

  1. Does this file (or files) preview normally on our website at
  2. What type (and extensions) are those files and how large in size?
  3. What OS and version of our mobile app are you on?
  4. Have you restarted your device to see if this does the trick for you?
  5. If you're getting any errors, could you forward me a screenshot so I can have a better look into this?

Thanks so much in advance for gathering this information for me @Oscar13!
