Playing videos files stored in BD on IOS Mobile Browser

  

Hello,

I have a web responsive site that uses the video widget to play videos stored in the database.

In the site the video widget is provided with an url of an auxiliar page that on its preperation downloads the video.

This works on desktop and on android mobile browsers, but on ios mobile browsers doesn't work, anyone knows if there is any extra step needed to make the video work on an ios browser?

Thank you,

Reinaldo Muralha

Hi!

Videos should be playable on iOS, but they need and explicit user action to autoplay. This is something that Apple did on their devices a couple of years ago.

There are alternatives like converting the video to Canvas on iOS devices for instance.

Is that what you are looking for?
