I've created an app with several videos, some embedded and some linked to Vimeo, and I would like the audio for them to play when the device is set to silent. I've seen other apps where the audio from the video plays regardless if the ringer is turned on or off, but no idea how to make that happen. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, this is helpful.

One thing I noticed, the version you have is 2015.6, which we released in October. Have you tried your content in the most recent build (2016.4)?

I don't have that exact scenario set up so I can't validate it, but I asked some colleagues to take a look.

It's got me baffled right now too, the articles were created in InDesign for DPS 2015 originally.

That's odd, the examples I looked at don't mute the video's audio track. You are embedding the links into an iframe?

It's on iOS, iPhone 6, iphone 6s, and an iPad. All 3 play the videos without sound with the ringer switch switched to silent.

Is this on iOS or Android? On iOS the audio does continue to play even if I switch the ringer to off.
