I’ve spent a while struggling with not being able to play videos in the
<video> tag in Android only. It looks like others are having similar issues. Initially, I was loading my video src with an angular directive, but have tried to hardcode a video tag and am seeing the same results. The video appears to load (along with the poster element), but when I click play, nothing happens. I’ve also used jQuery to try and trigger play via `$(‘video’).play() and get nothing.
It’s worth mentioning that everything is working properly in iOS - the video plays when you click play and jQuery is able to start and stop the video.
