    Default video not visible from iphone

    Hello.
    web design 17
    I have a video on the site with a 40% transparent rectangle png on it.
    I have disabled the retina function.
    Only on iphone the video is not seen.
    It can happen?
    Is there a reliable emulator IOS to test the site?
    thank you

    Can you post a link to the site and those of us with iPhones can look and see if we can see the video

    Thanks gwpriester's for replying.
    I created a sample page only in mobile version with 2 videos.
    In the first video the code is this: <video class = "xar_meplayer" src = "index_htm_files / videotest1.mp4" controls autoplay width = "100%" height = "100%" />
    In the second video the code is this: <video src = "index_htm_files / videotest1.mp4" controls autoplay width = "100%" height = "100%" />
    A friend of mine says that on safari the video doesn't start automatically.
    I know that Safari in 2018 disabled media autoplay.
    the example site: opencreative.it

    OK Opencreative.it does not auto-start in Safari or Edge on my iPhone.

    Acorn, Gary, Egg, Chris, Siran, someone, is there a script that will start the video automatically?

    Can't help with Safari (no Apple devices) but the autoplay works with Edge on Android. Maybe iOS rather than browser?

    @megapixel51, you state on your site that you removed the Xara player code...I agree, let the browser look after the controls.

    Chris - The video did not automatically start in Edge or Safari on my iPhone with the latest iOS.

    Yes, that was my point. It did autoplay in Edge on Android. It also worked with the default Samsung browser and the default browser on a Meizu Note 7. That makes me wonder if it's iOS rather than browser.

    I ask you 2 questions. Have you ever had problems like this? What is the correct way to insert videos on a page?

    Could you check whether this video (reformatted) works on Safari: https://initiostar.co.uk/demo/VideoTest/

    Might be able to help, but depends on the answer.
