Android webview url redirect?


Basically, do not expect your embedded WebView works the same as Android default Browser. The default Browser is built on the same WebView, but there are lots a customization. (Especially around the no-standard uri, HTML5 stuff)

I followed code from here: WebView and HTML5 <video>, and I put the video link to a video tag, and I got the Video playing in my own version of WebView. The behavior is a little different from the default Browser. Given more time, we could figure that out by looking at its code, but anyways ...

What is happening is when you click the hyperlink, that link probably has some popups inside of it. You need to define the onCreateWindow function in your webview's WebChromeClient. This handles how calls to open new windows or popups are handled.

After declaring your WebView you should set javascript enabled, then your WebView will work as a browser.
