DescriptionCreates a player view.
We create a new player view and use it for the current player to display video data.
Use AVPlayer.Release later to destroy the player and the view.
If you use a register (tab controls) on the window, be aware that the text view actually is in front of the register (tab controls). You may hide the text view if another register is visible.
When creating on a card window, please pass reference to parent window or just 0 for front window. On MacOS you may need to pass delta y value to adjust position.
If you create a control on a new window, you may do window update command in your script first to have FileMaker actually build the window with controls and display it. A short script pause or using FM.RunScriptLater with 0.1 delay can help having all controls draw themselves. Then you can use this command to put our control on top. We use GetLayoutObjectAttribute() to query left, top, width and height and this gives empty value if control is not yet here.
Mac 64-bit only.
