Video is an increasingly important component for websites - whether it’s to inform visitors, enhance user experience or support sales and marketing efforts. But delivering high-quality video at large scale can be quite a challenge. You need to consider encoding, format, bandwidth usage, delivery and the devices on which visitors may be watching the video, to name just a few concerns.
Update:In this post, we clarify that not all browsers natively support HLS or MPEG-DASH, and thus in order to deliver adaptive streaming video to all devices, you should deliver it using a video player that supports your chosen format. In December of 2017, Cloudinary released its own Video Player, which enables you to easily embed a player in your web page that can stream any HLS or MPEG-DASH video. For details, see the Video Player announcement blog post and the Video Player documentation.
