Video in HTML5

Dec 09, 2015


Is it possible to tell a video to automatically close in html5 (e.g. iPhone) once it finishes playing? Currently, you have to click the Done button on your iPhone to close it out. Also, can we keep the video from loading in full screen and instead play within the screen?

Hi Jason,

Unfortunately there isn't a way to tell it to close and go back to the course. 

The video going full screen is the default behavior of Mobile Safari. (See Apple's developer documentation for details.)

If you need to avoid this behavior, we recommend viewing courses with videos on larger screens, such as iPads, laptops, and desktop computers. Or, create a simplified version of the course that doesn't include videos for iPhone users.
