Audio player not shown on android native browser
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Probably related to 9649253f6b8329

On my cell phone, when browsing the desktop site, the media player for audio files is "missing", behaving much like it has a 0 height. Videos are fine. Issue is on both file pages and normal articles, on both commons and en wikipedia.

Random example file for quick reference: [[File:BWV_543-prelude.ogg]]

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

Tested with Chrome on my Nexus7 (Android 5.0).

Caused by missing supported player:

Check used for native ogg support is:
dummyvid.canPlayType( 'video/ogg; codecs="theora, vorbis"' )
which evaluates to: ""

Some other tests:

dummyvid.canPlayType( 'video/ogg; codecs="vorbis"' );
dummyvid.canPlayType( 'audio/ogg; codecs="vorbis"' );
dummyvid.canPlayType( 'application/ogg; codecs="vorbis"' );
