Google Chrome HTML5 video black screen.


Hi guys.

Lately I’ve looked into the HTML5 video and it is really cool, but :slight_smile: there is a wired problem on chrome, sometimes instead of loading and paying the video all I see is a black window where the video should be, this behavior is sporadic and makes no sense, some times the video works fine.

Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.


We had this issue when we were developing pre-rolled (In our portfolio). So we incorporated Video JS into it and it seemed to fix the problem.


I found the problem, I was making a test with two video instances and both instances were using the same video path, this is only happening on Chrome on the other browsers is working fine.

Hope this helps, I’ve wasted a few good hours to find out this crap :slight_smile:
