HTML5 Player Enhancements, Expanded Support for Android

The Brightcove product team is excited to share some cool new feature enhancements that improve HTML5 playback experiences and expand support for Android devices. 

BEML for HTML5 Video:  Brightcove was a pioneer in providing an easy-to-use, XML market-up language for building highly customized players, plug-in and extensions for Flash-based video experiences without having to write new Flash and Action Script code. In the current release we are improving the HTML5 playback experience:  the HTML5 player plays the video and makes best effort to render all visual components even if some of the BEML elements in the player cannot be rendered correctly. For detailed documentation on BEML support in HTML5 see Supported BEML Elements for HTML5 Players.

Video Cloud Supports Android 3.1: We're happy to add Android 3.1 to the fast-growing list of platforms Video Cloud support for HTML5 video. Android 3.1 powers the popular Motorola Xoom tablet and many other devices.
