Can't seem to play videos fullscreen on iPad. Help

Hi Justin,

I can't seem to have videos play in fullscreen on iPad. I have set the attributes of the video to play fullscreen in the overlays panel. Any suggestions?

Also, after exporting the HTML5 file, it seems that sometimes the video plays and sometimes doesn't play. Kind of buggy. Do you know why?


Thank you

When I export the InDesign file with the video having selected "Play Fullscreen" in the Overlays Panel I get the code below: When I play the video on iPad it won't play fullscreen by default as soon as I tap play. Any way we can do that? I want the video to play fullscreen as soon as it is tapped.

Any suggestions?

    <div id="item12664" class="pageItem" alt="Movie" style="left:665px;top:504px;">
      <video width="272" height="154" controls="controls" data-id="12664" poster="assets/images/item_12664.png" class="mejs-fsonly">
        <source src="assets/media/SC02157A_DrSiedhoff_Morcelation_03_2016_1.mp4" type="video/mp4"/>
        <object width="272" height="154" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="assets/media/flashmediaelement.swf">
          <param name="movie" value="assets/media/flashmediaelement.swf"/>
          <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/>
          <param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
          <param name="flashvars" value="controls=true&file=SC02157A_DrSiedhoff_Morcelation_03_2016_1.mp4"/><img src="assets/images/blank.gif" width="272" height="154" title="No video playback capabilities" data-src="assets/images/item_12664.png"/>

Hi Ed,

I think this maybe a limitation on the iPad:
