Is fullscreen looping video background possible?


#1

Hi everyone,

I love Ionic so far, it’s been a blast being able to use HTML5 to build apps!

I’ve been trying to get working is a fullscreen looping video behind some content, kind of like the Vine app when you first open it up. I’ve managed to get it working in the browser, but when I build it and test it on an acutal iPad, the video is nowhere to be seen. On the emulator, I just get the iOS video play button.

I know that iOS is strict about playing video to conserve data etc, but I figured it would be fine if it was included/built into the app itself. Is there a way to get around this?

Thanks!

I’ve been experimenting with this as well, with no success so far. I’ll post back if I find anything, please let me know if you do too.
