On iOS 13.3 videos can’t be manually played

I am running into an issue where I can’t play videos manually. Any ideas of what might be going on?


  1. Navigate to https://egghead.io/lessons/xstate-course-intro-and-overview
  2. Make sure “auto play” is turned off
  3. Tap the play button on video

Video should start playing

Video doesn’t play

If I toggle the “auto play” to on, tap to play and pause works as expected

I have restarted my phone and also tried with content blockers disabled. However, the problem still persist.

that’s super frustrating :confused:

We’ll look into it asap.

Thank you. Just to clarify, this is on

iOS 13.3, iPhone 11 Pro
