Ignore iOS silent/mute

#1

I am using Videogular to play videos inside my Ionic app. When an iOS device is in silent mode the video audio is muted. Normally videos play audio when played in an app or in Safari and ignore the silent mode. In my research I found that the cordova-plugin-media has an option for: playAudioWhenScreenIsLocked which will ignore the silent mode. Any ideas on how to accomplish this with Videogular?

Did you figure this out?

No, I haven’t. I did find this plugin, but have not had a chance to try it out: https://github.com/Salesfloor/cordova-silent-mode

I’m pulling my hair out on this one, very annoying. You’d think it was no problem.
