CORS on mobile

CORS on mobile

My video hosted on drop box plays fine on a browser but on a mobile device it does not and I receive a CORS warning.  The code is below.

 

 

<video id="my-player" poster="https://www.potstreatmentcenter.com/images/video_placeholder.PNG" preload="auto" controls="controls" width="300" height="150" > <source src="https://www.dropbox.com/s/videopath/video_name.mp4?raw=1" type="video/mp4" />
</video>

Hi there @user123123; thanks for posting on our Community and sorry to hear about this. 

Can you please send us a screenshot of how this looks like on your end?

Also, does this persist across other browsers? 

Keep us posted!

Hi,

It works as expected in Firefox and Edge, but Chrome in mobile mode and Safari mobile it does not play. Attached is what it looks like and the console.

Thanks,

Hey @user123123 , can you make sure the browsers are all up to date? 

 

Also, does this happen with other videos as well, or just this precise one? 

 

Thank you!

On other sites videos play as expected. 

For Chrome on windows 

Google Chrome is up to date
Version 89.0.4389.82 (Official Build) (64-bit)
 
Safari is on an iPhone 11 using software version 14.4.1
 
Thanks
