    When I go to a website I can play the mp4-video. Within my app I go to the same website with webview and I can the the whole website, but the mp4-video won't play. In the Manifest I include SetApplicationAttribute(android:hardwareAccelerated, "true") and the video does play in a good way on tablets, but not on a telephone (androidversion 4.4.2). What can I do to let it play witin the webview?

    On older devices you could have played videos with Flash. However this will not work on more recent devices.

    You can handle OverrideUrl event and if the link is a mp4 link show the video with VideoView.

    Thanks. I now know that I have to use the audio library. I was looking for a video library.
