Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of our own super fast and much better performing HTML5 video player that has now become the primary player for your videos, instead of the old Flash Player. This is great news!
- Amazing smooth playback with less buffering.
- Better looking design & player controls.
- Same experience on Desktop, Mobile and Tablet.
- Super fast – loads faster and is less CPU intensive vs the Flash Player.
- Smart switching to Flash as fallback for the few browsers that do not support native HTML5 playback and Media Source Extensions.
- Playback Speed Control – viewers can play your videos faster or slower.
- Accessibility support – compatible with screen / voice readers.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW?
Chrome ( the most popular browser ) soon will disable Flash and therefore our focus and top priority was to release our new HTML5 Player before it happens.
We have automatically switched your existing Single flash video embeds to the new HTML5 Player, so you don’t have to do anything. Just check and ensure your videos are working properly on your websites.
Soon we’ll also switch your existing playlists embeds ( video apps ) to our new responsive HTML5 variant(s). We plan to do it immediately after Chrome makes the move of disabling Flash or even before that.
