Smart Players are a convenient and powerful way to deliver video in both Flash and HTML5. There’s no need to create and manage separate online video players for each viewer environment and you don't need any additional code on your website. Using a single embed code, Smart Players automatically detect the devices viewing your video and deliver the appropriate format for that environment. Smart Players support all of Video Cloud’s advanced styling feaures, including point-and-click style editing and BEML customization. Player styles are automatically rendered in both Flash and HTML player instances.
