How to add the default buttons (play, pause, >>, etc.) to my iPhone video app?

Hi.

I used this video to make an application where an iPhone shows a video.
However, starting at 4:25, I used another code (the code of the video does not work with the current sdk).

Here's the code that i use:

- (IBAction)playMovie {
	
	NSURL *url = [NSURL fileURLWithPath:[[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:@"MOVIE001" ofType:@"mov"]];  
	MPMoviePlayerController *moviePlayer = [[MPMoviePlayerController alloc] initWithContentURL:url];  
	
	// Register to receive a notification when the movie has finished playing.  
	[[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self  
											 selector:@selector(moviePlayBackDidFinish:)  
												 name:MPMoviePlayerPlaybackDidFinishNotification  
											   object:moviePlayer];  
	
	if ([moviePlayer respondsToSelector:@selector(setFullscreen:animated:)]) {  
		// Use the new 3.2 style API  
		moviePlayer.controlStyle = MPMovieControlStyleNone;  
		moviePlayer.shouldAutoplay = YES;  
		[self.view addSubview:moviePlayer.view];  
		[moviePlayer setFullscreen:YES animated:YES];  
	} else {  
		// Use the old 2.0 style API  
		moviePlayer.movieControlMode = MPMovieControlModeHidden;  
		[moviePlayer play];  
	}  
	 

}

Open in new window


The application is running ok but when I touch the video i cant see this buttons:
User generated image

What changes should I do in my code to see this buttons?

Thanks and sorry for my bad english!

Can you use MPMoviePlayerViewController in your program?

this link is very interesting http://iphonedevelopertips.com/video/play-movies-in-portrait-mode-with-mpmovieplayercontroller-using-public-apis.html
but when i try to build it i got an error ''there is no sdk with the name or path iphoneos3.0'

you already awser my question with "moviePlayer.controlStyle = MPMovieControlStyleNone;
This line hides the controls".

thank you very much!
It's again the same - change the base SDK in the settings - right click on the project and then "Get Info", then "Build", ...
Let's switch to the view controller.
