To show your live streaming camera on your own web site, you will need a player embedded in your page. This is a simple task to perform, you simply paste the code we give you into your page where you want the live picture to appear. There are a few player options to choose from, each with different features and styles with customisation options for Business and Professional accounts. HTTPS is now standard on all accounts. View this page on a PC or Mac to show the complete selection available.

Our standard HTML5 player is highly popular and included on all accounts. Its responsive design means it will resize to fit your page as your web page resizes according to the device and screen size being used.
On computers the picture will start up automatically as soon as your viewer logs on to your camera page, while on some portable devices you may have to simply tap the play button to sart the player.
Player has pause and play controls, a volume and mute control (for streams with audio only) and a full screen button
Some customisation of the player can made for you if you are on the Business or Pro accounts or if you have added the customisation option to another package. This includes your own logo or no logo at all, repositioning of the full screen icon and a personalised loading graphic if required.
Compatible with 99% of all modern browsers and devices, this is the player of choice for the utmost browser and hardware compatibility for your web site display.
Our Web RTC player is ideal for when you need really low latency with the displayed live video typically a maximum of 1-3 seconds behind real time .
The player is fast to load and run and has Pause/Play option, Full Screen mode and a very useful Picture In Picture (PIP) mode.
This player is for low latency live streaming only and does not have time shift playback or playlist capability.
The Web RTC player is supported on any modern OS and mobile device with hardware decoding and is compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Brave browsers.
If the lowest latency stream is what you need for computers and mobile devices with a good variety of browser support then this is the player to choose.
Our Web Socket player uses Media Source Extensions to provide a low latency player with some added features which may be important for use on some specialised web sites.
This player can also be used with our time shifted playback feature for instant rewind of live cameras which is included with the professional account, and this can be added to any other account too providing this player is used.
This player is not quite as cross browser/device compatible as players 1 & 2. It will run on Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer on Windows and on Safari on the Mac. It will also operate on Chrome and Firefox on Android devices but Apple IOS does not yet support it so when Apple devices try to view the stream with this player it will switch in the standard player instead.
Customisation is limited to a splash screen, colour of the control bar, off air custom video, and custom test cards. Customisation only available on certain accounts.
This player fits the bill If you need low latency as a priority with computer viewers as your main target audience and is the smoothest for use with the Live Channel feature.
Flash is now pretty much obsolete in computer and mobile browsers. Although still in use in some systems, most browsers are steering away from it and will no doubt stop supporting it in the not too distant future.
However, some much older browsers and operating systems are not capable of using HTML5 or other technologies so this player may still have some use for specialised web sites that are reluctant to give up Flash.
Also many smart TV browsers have embedded flash and are not HTML5 compliant and many set top boxes still use embedded flash in their operating systems for displaying live video content.
So we still offer a Flash only player for those systems and users who are intent on using Flash, and this player is also switched in automatically by our low latency player if it detects an old flash only system is trying to play the live feed.
Customisation is limited to a logo and splash screen, but the system does allow for up to 12 x hours of timeline - instant playback if required.
