I'm developing an application that playing 3 videos simultaneously on mobile. iPhone5 is working fine. But iPhone 4 will hang. 

Anyone has solution to this problem? 

Thanks!

Remember that playing videos is an expensive thing to do in terms of resources, and trying to play 3 simultaneously will be more difficult with a lower power device such as the iPhone 4 due to it being a single core device, and lower GPU capability.

I suggest you rethink your application with respect to the user experience you are trying to achieve, and try to think how it could be more consistent across devices of different power.

BTW You may try searching for "simultaneous videos" in the forums because this has come up many times before - more for Unity though - to see how others have approached this.

Thanks NalinS

That is what I guessed. I'm just looking around to see if there is any other way to boost the performance in the code.
