Dear Experts,

I have created custom video player using javascript. How to mute video in iOS using javascript? Below is my code:

var myAudio = document.getElementById('myaudio');

if (myAudio.muted==true) {
myAudio.volume = 1;
myAudio.muted = false;
} else {
myAudio.volume = 0;
myAudio.muted = true;
}

Above code working fine in Windows, MAC and Linux. But not working in iOS.

Regards,
John.A

I think you can not as Apple doesn't follow the standards there. They want to controll it over the hardware mute button.

See http://blog.millermedeiros.com/unsolved-html5-video-issues-on-ios/


No way to control volume using JavaScript

The HTML5 spec says that every media element have a property called volume which is used to get and set the volume of the audio or video playback, this value should be a number from 0.0 to 1.0 (inclusive), but again Apple decided to not follow the standard on the iOS and only allow the volume control using the physical control [3]. Changing the property muted also doesn’t have any effect on the iOS.
