I am trying to have a video play as a background on a page behind some text without any option of starting and stopping it manually. Like moving wallpaper--no more than that. The play/pause funtion interferes a bit with swiping to the next page and I would like to turn it off if poss.
Thanks in advance.
looping through js doesn't work anymore since, i believe, 4.2 and only a "bug" in iOS 6.0 made it work, "fixed" in iOS 6.1.
Why don't you allow us to choose? Apple disabled autoplay inside their native safari app. It's not disable in the whole iOS.
As you say, you don't expose the repeat option. Which means, at least you are aware that the options inside iOS exists. YAY
Why you don' expose it, is another question. I mean, you need to add one checkbox inside the overlay creator ... NOT that hard ... but it's work - ok.
for html5 videos it's even easier to enable and i'm clueless why you guys don't allow it and even blame apple that it doesn't work...
Using the webOverlay in dps, adobe utilises a UIWebView (behind the scenes/in code) from Apple to display the html content. These UIWebViews have an option to enable autoplay for videos - adobe simply did NOT choose to enable it. The option is called "mediaPlaybackRequiresUserAction" and is YES by default. By that, ignoring a provided autoplay tag and requiring a real User tap. Adobe could have set it to "no" and we could use the autoplay tag inside video elements to enable it ourselves.
It's ONE line of code. ;( No UI change, super simple, 2 seconds to "code" ...
