Notes

  1. Old Firefox versions were missing support for some properties: loop was added in v11, played in v15, playbackRate in v20.

Bugs

  • The default media playback controls are not displayed with a strict Content-Security-Policy in Safari 11 and 12 unless you allow loading images from data URIs. (img-src data:, like unsafe-inline).

  • Volume is read-only on iOS.

  • iOS and Chrome on Android do not support autoplay as advised by the specification.

  • On iOS the ended event is not fired when the screen is off or the browser is in the background (meaning that e.g. src cannot be changed).
