How to play local video in ionic on windows 8 mobile?

The project (Ionic 3.7) was migrated to electron for better windows 8 mobile compatibility (everything breaks otherwise).
I’ve seen workarounds and cordova video players, but for android and iOS only.
Is there another cross-platform way of playing a local video other than the html5 way?

<div class="video-container">
    <video width="900px" height="440px" controls autoplay>
      <source src="../../assets/videos/my-video.mp4"/>
