Disabling Auto-Play in Full Screen on Ios

Disabling auto-play in full screen on iOS

Playing a video inline requires two prerequisites:

  1. Setting the configuration
  2. Providing a correctly formatted link

1. Setting the configuration

The configuration of the WKWebView has needs to be set while initialising. Modifying allowsInlineMediaPlayback at a later point will not work:

let configuration = WKWebViewConfiguration()
configuration.allowsInlineMediaPlayback = true

let webView = WKWebView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: view.frame.width, height: view.frame.height), configuration: configuration)


2. Providing a correctly formatted link

In order for the web view to know that the video should start playing inline the appropriate URL parameter needs to be set.

For this you simply have to append ?playsinline=1.


webView.load(URLRequest(url: URL(string: "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYbXaqQ3uuo?playsinline=1")!))

From YouTube iFrame Player API:

This parameter controls whether videos play inline or fullscreen in an HTML5 player on iOS. Valid values are:
0: This value causes fullscreen playback. This is currently the default value, though the default is subject to change.
1: This value causes inline playback for UIWebViews created with the allowsInlineMediaPlayback property set to TRUE.
