Introducing the JW Player for HTML5
Today, Longtail Video announced the beta release of the JW Player for HTML5. The JW Player for HTML5 leverages new technology within modern web browsers to playback video without the need for plugins or addons. This has the potential to improve both user experience and performance, especially as browsers begin to take advantage of the hardware-based video decoding available on most devices.
That having been said, no browser on the market today has the extensive playback capability of the JW Player for Flash. For that reason, They built in a seamless fallback for those viewers who can't take advantage of these improvements.
- Full support for all browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, iPad, and iPhone
- Playback capabilities for H.264, Theora, and FLV
- Support for all JW Player PNG Skins and
- An extensive API for those who want to add in additional functionality
