The Brightcove Player Toolbox

One of the missions of the core web player team here at Brightcove is to remove barriers to integration with the Brightcove Player. We aim to delight our customers with the Player's flexibility, stability, and ease-of-use. The fundamental architecture of the HTML5 web player has not changed much in the last five years or so.

Out with the Old, In with the New

Yesterday, we pre-released version 6.20.0 of the Brightcove Player, marking the first release using Video.js 7! Video.js 7 includes two major changes. First, it bundles the Video.js HTTP Streaming library into Video.js, adding HLS playback support and experimental DASH playback support to the default Video.js library.
