Azure Media Player

Learn More About Azure Media Player

Azure Media Player is a web video player built to play back media content from Microsoft Azure Media Services on a wide variety of browsers and devices. Azure Media Player utilizes industry standards, such as HTML5, Media Source Extensions (MSE), and Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) to provide an enriched adaptive streaming experience. When these standards are not available on a device or in a browser, Azure Media Player uses Flash and Silverlight as fallback technology.

Microsoft Azure Media Services allows for content to be served up with DASH, Smooth Streaming, and HLS streaming formats to play back content. Azure Media Player takes into account these various formats and automatically plays the best link based on the platform/browser capabilities.
