[videoView setHidden:NO];
NSArray *paths = NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(NSDocumentDirectory, NSUserDomainMask, YES);
NSString *documentsDirectory = [paths objectAtIndex:0];
NSString *path2 = [documentsDirectory stringByAppendingPathComponent:saveFileName];
NSURL *url1 = [[NSURL alloc] initFileURLWithPath: path2];
videoPlayer = [AVPlayer playerWithURL:url1] ;
self.avPlayerLayer = [AVPlayerLayer playerLayerWithPlayer:videoPlayer];

//[self willAnimateRotationToInterfaceOrientation];
avPlayerLayer.frame = videoView.bounds;
[self.videoView.layer addSublayer: avPlayerLayer];

[self.videoPlayer play];


I tried this it doesn't work

//[self.videoPlayer release];

Answer

AVPlayer does not have a method named stop. You can pause or set rate to 0.0.
