You will need a player embedded in your web page in order to play your live camera feed, or video's from your live channel on your own website. We provide a smart player that will run directly in your browser on Windows PC, Mac computers and Linux machines, and even on Android and Apple mobile phones and tablet devices too. So with this player your pretty much covered. The player uses HTML5 in compatible browsers and operating systems and reverts to Flash if your using an older Browser or OS thats not fully compatible with the latest HTML5 system. This player is simple to embed using just a line of code, and then you also benefit from future player updates or upgrades without having to modify your code - it just happens. This is the best player and recommended for the fastest, easiest and most cross device compatible method of embedding your stream into your own web site.
We also provide a Flash only player which is ideal if you are only going to be using your feed with Flash compatible machines or if you intend streaming to the browsers used in Smart TV's etc. and in this case you can then make use of the flash "time shift playback" feature. If you really want to, we can also stream your feed to run in Windows Media players or Microsoft Silverlight and can provide you with players for these media types too - but for the most compatibility with multiple devices we recommend our cross browser player.
Here are demonstrations of these two players. If your device is not compatible with a player type then of course you wont be able to watch it on this demonstration page, so view it on the type of devices used by your target audience to see how it performs.
Best Cross Browser Player for Computers and Mobiles - Recommended.
Flash Player - Not Mobile Compatible.
This player must have Adobe Flash installed to operate. Some browsers and operating systems are starting to turn away from Flash in favour of HTML5, but many systems still embrace Flash too. The browsers in most Smart TV's are not HTML5 compatible but already have Flash installed when you buy them so if your intending to set up a display system using Smart TV's and other machines that are running Flash then this player can be used to great effect.
Although not so cross browser compatible and not compatible with mobile devices at all, for a Flash delivery system it is ideal an be used with the "Time Line" feature that is only compatible with Flash players. This allows you to use a slider in the player to move backwards and then forwards to real time again for up to 720 minutes (12 hours) and this is only available with the dedicated Flash player.
