I have noticed that embedded video clips (youtube) on some web pages do not have sound.

However playing the same video directly from youtube works fine.

Does anyone else seen this and what is the reason for the missing audio of the video playback?

The browser is the SF native browser.

Hi, could you provide the website's URL where you've encountered this problem?

@jiit Here is one Finnish site


I also noticed that some embedded videos, which have full video controls are also playing audio.

Here is example of the video, which has the video controls


When video is playing it has no audio. When you tap to video the controls will appear and taping the speakers will restore the audio as well.

Sorry also the first video link had the video controls, so I'll keep searching.

But I feel the the video controls were not available in earlier SF version i.e. before

The release notes of the Saapunki is indicating that browser has now HTML5 Fullscreen support perhaps this feature is actually activated the video controls on embedded video, which allows to turn on the audio as well @veskuh are you able to confirm my assumption is correct?

@Kari Yes, when we enabled fullscreen support we included some graphical assets for controls into engine packaging. It is possible that those are needed to control embedded video audio and since we now have them some controls become visible and usable.
