    I can see the first image

    I see only a black box.

    [video mp4="" preload="auto" autoplay="true" loop="true" width="854" height="480" id="movie-id" controls="false"][track kind=”captions” src=”” srclang=”en” label=”English” default=”true”][/video]

    Question is it possible to make the video responsive?

    Have you checked to see if you video is prepared properly, as per this article?

    The next version of the plugin will have an option to make the videos responsive. If you are interested you can check out the beta version at – just be aware that there may still be some bugs.

    I have the same issue.
    In fact, it seems that the video does not start automatically in the Ipad, even if the autoplay=”true” has been added.
    If you add the control=”true” option, then you are able to launch the video in the Ipad using the controls.
    Is there a way to improve this?
    Many thanks

    Apple does not allow videos to autoplay on iOS, so the autoplay attribute has no effect on iPads, iPhones, etc.

    Hi Dustin,
    Thanks for the info. I was not aware of this.
    Is there a way to treat in a different manner IOS (for example, show only an image instead of the video) …
    … but I want to keep the video for the PC viewers!

    You could change it to an image using some javascript and browser/device detection I’m sure, but I can’t be of much help in that area. I would just make sure to set a good poster image (using poster=”img/url.jpg”) so that if the iOS touches the video it plays, but otherwise they still see a relevant image.
