Player V4 Stream Support

Player V4 is a modular player consisting of plugins, which means that you can add or remove certain player functionality depending on which plugins you load on your HTML page. Some plugins are required for your player to function and other plugins are optional, depending on what functionality you want your player to have. For details on the default location of these plugins, see Ooyala-hosted Player V4 Resources.

Video plugins create video elements and video wrappers, and decode video encodings. They provide the Ooyala Player information about the encoding and encryption types they support, and the player uses that information, along with a priority order for encodings, to select which plugin to use when playing a stream. You can load any number of video plugins on your page.

At least one video plugin is required for Player V4.

The tables below show which streams are supported for Player V4 (by device and by browser), and which video video plugins to use to support these streams.

Stream Options

Note: The HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), including Akamai HDS (or HD2) streaming protocol, use Flash. Browsers have been disabling and blocking the Flash plugin. As a result, Ooyala strongly recommends that customers encode and use HLS and Dash moving forward.
Device Supported Streams Recommended Stream Supported Player V4 Plugins
Desktop MP4, HLS, eHLS, HDS (Deprecated), DASH HLS
Android Web MP4, HLS, eHLS, DASH DASH
iOS Web MP4, HLS, eHLS HLS
Android App MP4, HLS, eHLS, DASH HLS or DASH N/A - use the mobile SDK for Android
iOS App HLS, eHLS, MP4 HLS N/A - use the mobile SDK for iOS
Note: Player V4 is not supported on Xbox, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Connected/Smart TVs, or Chromecast devices for this release.

Stream Support per Browser

Note: The OSMF and Akamai plugins (deprecated) allow backwards compatibility with existing HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) and Akamai HDS (or HD2) assets. However, HDS and HDS2 use a Flash component, and browsers will soon be disabling the Flash plugin. Going forward, Ooyala strongly recommends that customers encode and use HLS and Dash instead. This may involve re-encoding existing assets where possible. Given industry changes and the increased importance of mobile playback, we expect to deprecate support for Flash-based formats (such as HDS and HD2) soon. Customers should consider these as legacy formats that are being phased out over time.
