Radiant Media Player

Compatibility table

Introduction to the compatibility table

Radiant Media Player supports HLS, DASH (Dash WebM, DASH HEVC & DASH264) and progressive download (MP4/WebM) to HTML5 video. No plugin is required to access the media content. Audio-only streaming is also available with HLS, DASH & progressive download (M4A/MP3) to HTML5 audio.

As Flash becomes obsolete in the streaming media industry support for Flash in Radiant Media Player 4 has been deprecated and is progressively being phased out of Radiant Media Player. This is a good thing for your viewers.

Our leading video ads solution will let you monetize your content according to the latest standard in the industry (VAST/VPAID/VMAP).

Decryption of DRM & AES-128/SAMPLE-AES encrypted media is available to prevent theft of content in HLS & DASH.

Radiant Media Player focuses especially on supporting mobile devices as the mobile web overtakes the classic "Desktop" web. You can also build mobile applications for Android or iOS with Radiant Media Player through Cordova-based frameworks or use it in WebViews.
