iOS: Playing a audio only stream renders video tag and goes full screen.


We are using HLS streaming from wowza to play audio only streams.
JW Player renders perfectly with audio, but on the DOM side, we can see it uses video tag.
Can we get audio tag rendered instead of video?

And it also goes full screen when played (Same for video).

Any options/workarounds as we want player to be inline with content as viewer needs to see content and listen audio (and/or video) simultaneously.

Thank you for the question. You cannot use an audio tag instead of a video tag.
I am not sure exactly what you are asking in the second question. Can you please clarify?

Thank you,
