Discussion on: Play videos inline in HTML5 video player on iOS

I tried this on iOS 12.1.4 with Videojs 7.4.1. It makes no difference. Videojs gives better control but if the user goes fullscreen (which they need to be able to do on a small screen device) my app still crashes when they exit fullscreen. It takes about three open/close transitions before closing fullscreen causes the app to crash. I am abandoning HTML5 video in my app for now. Works perfectly on Android but iOS is just too unreliable. Unless you (or anyone else on this forum) can suggest something else?
