    I achieved to play a video inline on safari on IOS with playsinline like this : <video src="file.mp4" playsinline> and a button to play/pause the video.

    Unfortunatelty is not working on the platform telerik with cordova.

    How van I to that ?

    Hi Antoine,

    Video playback inline is possible as of iOS 10 - see this blogpost. I tested the following code on device with iOS 10 and it runs just fine inline:
    <video autoplay
           muted
           playsinline
           width="310"
    </video>


    Make sure to edit your projects iOS Config.xml  so that the AllowInlineMediaPlayback attribute is set to "true" - otherwise the playback would enter fullscreen when starting playback and not inline.

    Let me know if this has helped.

    Awesome. My problem was that I couldn't find the config.xml file and though the platform didn"t allow to modify it.
