Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-7708) HTML5 video playback in iOS is muted by ringer switch

Sterling Nelson created CB-7708:

             Summary: HTML5 video playback in iOS is muted by ringer switch
                 Key: CB-7708
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.5.0
         Environment: iOS 7, iOS 8
            Reporter: Sterling Nelson
            Priority: Minor

We've got a Cordova based iOS app (targeted for iOS7 and 8) that plays back
a fair amount of media content as HTML5 video.  We've been having issues
with video not playing sound for some users.  I suspect some of the issues
are related to device ringers being set to mute (which does not seem to affect video playback
in Safari), and would like to cross these cases out.  From my perspective it'd be nice if
behavior of the HTML5 video element in iOS WebViews matched its Safari behavior.  

I managed to get the behavior I would like by fiddling with the Cordova
default view controller, but I would rather not modify Cordova's controllers in place (in
part because it seems wrong, but mostly because we'd like to be able to re-build our Cordova
app without having to worry
about modifying library files.)

Is there currently something I should configure to have Cordova just do this for me? I see
that the Media plugin does something similar to this, but couldn't find anything like it documented
for video.  If this is not currently set-able, are there particular plans to implement (or
never do so)?

We're using Cordova 3.5.0-0.2.7.  I'm happy to provide more info about the
fiddling I've done thus far.
