Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-7708) HTML5 video playback in iOS is muted by ringer switch
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2014 22:44:34 GMT

Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-7708:
--------------------------------------

Definitely can. If you add your code in a plugin (put the code in the pluginInitialize method),
with the config.xml param onload="true" it should be enabled. Of course since it will be a
plugin you can set the audio session however you want even controlling it from JavaScript,
but that's outside the scope of this issue.

> We've got a Cordova based iOS app (targeted for iOS7 and 8) that plays back a fair amount
of media content as HTML5 video.  We've been having issues with video not playing sound for
some users.  I suspect some of the issues are related to device ringers being set to mute
(which does not seem to affect video playback in Safari), and would like to cross these cases
out.  From my perspective it'd be nice if behavior of the HTML5 video element in iOS WebViews
matched its Safari behavior.  
> I managed to get the behavior I would like by fiddling with the Cordova default view
controller, but I would rather not modify Cordova's controllers in place (in part because
it seems wrong, but mostly because we'd like to be able to re-build our Cordova app without
having to worry about modifying library files.)
> Is there currently something I should configure to have Cordova just do this for me?
I see that the Media plugin does something similar to this, but couldn't find anything like
it documented for video.  If this is not currently set-able, are there particular plans to
implement (or never do so)?
> We're using Cordova 3.5.0-0.2.7.  I'm happy to provide more info about the fiddling I've
done thus far.
> Thanks!
