Correct way to play short videos in Ionic

I want to create a tiktok liked video player in Ionic, the native player says it only support Android device VideoPlayer | Ionic Native Cordova-Plugin-VideoPlayer. What is the recommended way play short videos in Ionic? I saw some one says HTML5 is not the right way in here Ionic and HTML5 video tag


Hmmm…I am pretty sure HTML 5 player is fine to use in 2022. I am using it without issue. I use Plyr to play YouTube and Vimeo videos along with audio. It can also play videos from other sources too.

I think the only drawback is that native player controls don’t show up as a notification at least on Android (I’ve heard they do on iOS but haven’t confirmed).
