This state is entered when the playback
rate changes to a value of 0.0. This change could be the result of calling the
pause() method or explicitly changing the playback
rate, but could also occur due to an external event such as an iOS interruption. In this state, playback is paused indefinitely and will not begin again until the playback rate changes to a value greater than 0.0 and sufficient media data has been buffered for playback to proceed.
To Play At Specified Rate
This state is entered when the playback buffer becomes empty and stalls during normal playback or if a request to play is made and insufficient media data has been buffered. This state will also be entered if the player does not have a current player item (
nil). In this state, the
rate property does not indicate the current playback rate, but instead indicates the rate at which playback will start or resume when possible. You can refer to the
reason property to determine why the player is currently waiting.
