How to mute video in HTML?

< video > tag

HTML 5 contains a special < video > tag to easily embed a media player inside the web page, which helps us support video playback inside the web page document. Apart from the video, we can also play music and audio. Still, for that, < audio > tag is a better option also present there in HTML 5.

The < video > tag contains multiple attributes which can be used to perform multiple operations

for example

  • Auto play - next video automatically begins after one
  • control - the browser will provide to control video
  • loop - automatically start the same video once this end
  • height - adjust the height
  • width - adjust the width

All we have to do is declare a variable, link the variable to the position of the video using DOM manipulation and link the variable to muted and assign true and false Boolean values where true denotes mute and false denotes unmute

Syntax: -

Video . muted = true

Example: -
