The New Brightcove Video Player is Here!

The New Brightcove Video Player is Here!

We are excited to announce that the new, ultra-fast Brightcove Video Player has been rolled out to existing Video Cloud customers!

What does this mean? Along with many added benefits, Video Cloud users can now utilize the fastest Brightcove player…ever. In fact, it’s the fastest player available anywhere on planet earth.

Integrated into existing Video Cloud accounts, the new Brightcove Player is a mobile- and HTML5-first video player that loads quickly, delivers high-quality adaptive bitrate HLS video across desktop and mobile platforms, and integrates with your favorite advertising and analytics systems.

Here are some other awesome benefits of the new Brightcove Player:

  • HTML5 First - The UI of the new Brightcove Player is written entirely in HTML5, and relies on Flash only on older browsers, enabling consistent look and behavior across mobile and desktop.
  • Responsive - The default player skin is responsive by default and will automatically resize to fit changing web layouts, while maintaining the aspect ratio of the video.
  • Fast Load - With instant load and extremely fast time to first frame, viewers are immediately engaged with your content.
  • Advertising and Analytics Integration - Many plugins are available for the Brightcove Player to integrate with popular advertising and analytics systems including Google Doubleclick, Freewheel, LiveRail, and others.
  • Easy customization - Use standard web technologies (CSS and Javascript)
  • Cross-platform HLS - High-quality, adaptive bitrate video even on platforms that do not have native HLS capability to deliver the best user experience.
  • Player Management - Easily keep track of player configuration and make changes to styles and plugins either through Video Cloud or the new Player Management API. Easily update players across your site without changing the code for each page.
