How do I use Video plugin on mobile devices

Does each video clip need a touch event to begin on mobile?

Can the user tap a button to begin the first video then have another video automatically play after the first video ends without a touch event?

Yes, every video play needs a touch to start.

@Ashley ... is there any way that this could ever be changed in the future and have the video auto play when called? Or is it something that will never work on mobile?

AFAIAA this is a mobile limitation.

Maybe the following link will help:

This has been necessary on all mobile browsers for several years now, so I doubt it will change.

Thanks @zenox98 and @Ashley. The way I have this game set up is reliant on the video to play without touch; otherwise, it doesn't make sense. I'll just have to find another way to do things, such as using sprites and different graphics altogether. Oh well...no biggie.

Hello all,

I am facing the same issues with my project. Though after a extensive search i found this link here:

https://github.com/gomobile/sample-html5-web-video-playback

I haven't tested it yet, as i don't have enough knowledge to work in java script or HTML5. If anyone knows gets the video to work with this, please reply.

I hope this will help. :D

Hi there!

I got a feedback from my client telling me that the videos of an app I developed for them are not working specifically on their tablets.

Videos play normally on Windows (NW.js), mobile phones, but won't play in their tablet devices.

They sent me the specs:

Multilaser M7S
CPU: Dual Core 2x 1.2 GHz
RAM: 512 MB DDR III
Android: 4.4
Screen resolution: 800 x 480

There are two videos in the app and both are encoded in the three formats required.

Any idea of what's happening?
