    Just want to notify that HTML5 video tags doesn't work within the Telerik Appbuilder simulator. I need to push it up in the cloud and view in the companion app to check if the videos are working or not.

    Hello Sudipta,

    Thank you for contacting us. The AppBuilder Simulator does not support the <audio> or <video> tags and this is the reason why you cannot play your video/audio files in the simulator with these Html5 tags. This is a known issue and it is listed in our documentation as such. Still, those tags should work as expected on a device and in the companion app as you noted.

    Please accept our apology for this inconvenience.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
