    Default Hide a video when it finishes playing?

    Ive tried a few things like onended in the video tags. I cant seem to get this to work. I have a 15 second video that autoplays on page load but I want it to disappear (preferably fade out) after its done playing. Anyone have any pointers? I've tried this

    <div id="introvid">
    <video class="xar_meplayer" src="index_htm_files/stage manager intro video.mp4" controls autoplay width = "100%" height="100%" onended="myFunction()"/>

    function myFunction() {
    var x = document.getElementById("introvid");
    if (x.style.display === "none") {
    x.style.display = "block";
    } else {
    x.style.display = "none";

    But it doesn't work. Any help is appreciated

    A different way to do this that might work for you? I inserted a coloured rectangle 1920px x 1080px for the closing frames of my intro video to match the background colour of the website e.g https://initiostar.co.uk. In my case the headline message and menu have a delayed fade-in animation over the video. The intro video is on the index page, plays once and the menu takes you to pages 1, 2 etc. Works on the desktop and mobile variant and uses export option scale-to-fit-width.

    HTML Code:
    <! --1920 x 1080 video set to fill the browser window-->
    * {  box-sizing: border-box;}
    #myVideo {
      position: fixed;
      right: 0;
      bottom: 0;
      min-width: 100%; 
      min-height: 100%;
    <video autoplay muted id="myVideo">
    <source src="Intro.mp4"  type="video/mp4">
    Another way if you have a headline banner video (say 1920px x 400px) is to place the video at the top of the page and have the menu bar scroll to stick-at-top whereby the video scrolls out of view. If the video has sound you may need to code a pause video when it scrolls out of site.
