Got Apple' response

Until a fix is incorporated into a future version of iOS for this problem, developers who need to use autolayout in contentOverlayView subviews should set the property to true manually before adding subviews to it like this:

playerViewController.view.setNeedsLayout() playerViewController.view.layoutIfNeeded() playerViewController.contentOverlayView?.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = true

I messed with this today and it works fine if you don't use auto layout.

`if let overlayView = playerController.contentOverlayView { myView.frame = overlayView.bounds myView.autoresizingMask = [.flexibleWidth, .flexibleHeight] overlayView.addSubview(myView) } `
