    Hi Tina,
     In our application, we are serving mp4 videos using HTML5 like-


    <video controls="" autoplay="" name="media">
    <source src="http://testsystems.com/data/20150918_103225_9826/1B_Structure_v1_1.mp4" type="video/mp4">
    </video>

    mp4 videos are playing well without any issue on Desktop, Laptop, Andriod Tab and iPad using HTTP. 

    But when we are trying to play mp4 videos using HTTPS on Andriod Tab (Samsung Galaxy), we are geeting black screen. Although there is no issue on Laptop, Desktop and iPAD. The only issue on Android Tab. 

    We are using following HTML5 mark up to play mp4 videos using HTTPS-



    <video controls="" autoplay="" name="media">
    <source src="https://testsystems.com/data/20150918_103225_9826/1B_Structure_v1_1.mp4" type="video/mp4">
    </video>

    What could be the possible cause? Does Android not support mp4 videos using HTTPS?


    Regards,
    Samir

    Hello Samir,

    I was able to play a video file over HTTPS in a sample app. You would only need to ensure that the Hardware Acceleration feature is enabled for Android devices. I further commented your case in this forum post.

    Let me know your thoughts and progress on this.
