[Monitoring] The latest update to the Brightcove Player is now ready for prime time. Version 5 can now play adaptive bitrate HLS video without using Flash on most browsers (including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, and IE 11 on Windows 8) using the new Media Source Extensions (MSE) API. It’s our most efficient player ever, using 33-50% of the CPU load compared to Flash-based playback, and it is no longer filtered by power-saving or Flash blocking modes.
You can take advantage of this great new release today by creating a new player in the Brightcove Video Cloud Studio or when your existing players are automatically updated starting February 8. Log in to the Studio today to give it a try (or to opt-out of automatic updates).
