The Auto-play and Loop functions in Android are disabled to minimize the user bandwidth however this post may offer you some help if trying to find a quick fix for this problem.

All you have to do is to follow the below steps.

1. Use the following script for your HTML file –

unction onPageLoad()
{
loadVideo();
loadAudio();
}

function loadVideo()
{
document.getElementById(“sampleVideo”).src = “./surefox.mp4”;
document.getElementById(“sampleVideo”).load();
startPlayingvideo();
}

function loadAudio()
{
document.getElementById(“sampleAudio”).src = “./surefox.mp3”;
document.getElementById(“sampleAudio”).load();
startPlayingaudio();
}

function startPlayingaudio()
{
//Keep looping the same audio
setTimeout(function() { document.getElementById(“sampleAudio”).play(); },100);
}
function startPlayingvideo()
{
//Keep looping the same Video
setTimeout(function() { document.getElementById(“sampleVideo”).play(); },100);
}

Note – Change the name of the audio and video file accordingly and make necessary changes if using only video or only audio files.

2. For the body of the HTML file, use the following –

<body onload=”onPageLoad()”>
<div style=”width:10px;height:310px;padding:5px;”>
<video id=”sampleVideo” style=”width:300px;height:300px;” controls=”controls” onended=”startPlayingvideo()” ></video>
<audio id=”sampleAudio” style=”width:300px;height:300px;” controls=”controls” onended=”startPlayingaudio()” ></audio>
</div>
</body>
