Looking for ideas on how to handle RTMedia attachments in Apppresser view

Hi - we are using Apppresser to turn our buddypress site into an App. There is a known conflict with RT Media, in that when RT Media is activated, the ajax spinner doesn't work on the App - so we blocked RT media from the Apppresser Child theme we're using. Fine.

Here is the problem, and where I need ideas. When users post documents on the website - they are inaccessible on the App, because RTMedia is blocked, and the documents are stored in an RT Media folder (example path: https://healthcomspringboard.org/members/raj/media/documentname/ - that media folder is part of RTMedia).

Do you think there is a way to grant access to that RTMedia folder via a function on the apppresser child theme? I'm trying to figure out how to handle this - another ideas is to have a message pop up when a user clicks on the document that says 'documents can be viewed on website". Any ideas? Thanks!

    Thanks Kasia,

    I have moved in a different direction with this, hopefully you can help.

    I have enabled RTMedia again - so attachments are opening fine.

    The reason I had it disabled because it was interfering with the "spinner" that you get on menu items. It's a class called 'ajaxify' and it's built into the Appresser Theme.

    What I did was add the .spinner CSS to the Child theme - and voila - it works - I no longer just get a black box, I get the spinner - you can see it here: https://healthcomspringboard.org/activity/?appp=1

    However, on the app - no spinner - just a black box when you click on a menu item.

    This is the css code:

    .ajax-spinner .spinner, #buddypress li.load-more a .spinner {
        height: 40px;
        width: 40px;
        margin: 3px auto;
        position: relative;
        animation: 0.6s linear 0s normal none infinite running rotation;
        border-width: 4px;
        border-style: solid;
        border-color: #FFF rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.15) rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.15);
        border-radius: 100%;
        display: inline !important;

    I thought display: inline !important; would override RTMedia's css, which for the spinner is display: none.
    But like I said, the spinner isn't showing on the app. Any idea on how to force this style on the mobile app?

Thank NAME, for their help.
