Introduction

Embed videos into your AMP HTML files. Video source files should be served via HTTPS.

Setup

Import the amp-video component.

<script async custom-element="amp-video" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-video-0.1.js"></script>

Basic Usage

A simple video with controller. amp-video supports the following formats: mp4, webm, ogg together with all the formats supported by the HTML5 video tag including HLS. Boolean attribute (controls in this case) must be without values. Expression with value like controls="controls" is invalid.

Example

Your browser doesn't support HTML5 video.

<amp-video width="480"
  height="270"
  src="/video/tokyo.mp4"
  poster="/img/tokyo.jpg"
  layout="responsive"
  controls>
  <div fallback>
    <p>Your browser doesn't support HTML5 video.</p>
  </div>
  <source type="video/mp4"
    src="/video/tokyo.mp4">
  <source type="video/webm"
    src="/video/tokyo.webm">
</amp-video>

Autoplay

Setting autoplay will automatically play/pause the video as it is scrolled into/out of view on supported browsers.

The video is automatically muted before autoplay starts, when the user taps the video, the video is unmuted.

If the user has interacted with the video (e.g., mutes/unmutes, pauses/resumes, etc.), and the video is scrolled in or out of view, the state of the video remains as how the user left it.

Example

Your browser doesn't support HTML5 video.

<amp-video width="480"
  height="270"
  src="/video/tokyo.mp4"
  poster="/img/tokyo.jpg"
  layout="responsive"
  controls
  autoplay>
  <div fallback>
    <p>Your browser doesn't support HTML5 video.</p>
  </div>
  <source type="video/webm"
    src="/video/tokyo.webm">
</amp-video>
