HTML 5 video tag doesn't display controls on android

Hi all!
I have a video tag that autoplays inline for android. When the user tabs on it a function gets called with video.webkitEnterFullscreen();

When entering the fullscreen no controls get displayed tho. I added the controls attribute, wrapped it in a div with data-tap-disable=“true” as suggested in another topic and also tried adding overflow-scroll=“true” to the ionic-content. Nothing worked. Any suggestions how to fix this?
