Note, that displaying video on canvas significantly reduces possibilities of hardware acceleration for video decoding on browser side.

> 1) I'd be grateful If you could let me know IF playing a video within an iframe or on canvas IS in fact possible (without going full screen) ON an iphone.
> 2) If it is NOT possible, is this feature on the roadmap? If so, what is the release date?
> Thanks a lot for your information,
