Azure Media Player

Your content. Multiple devices. One player.

Automatic playback on the most popular devices

Azure Media Player automatically picks the best format for a browser or device, and uses the dynamic packaging capabilities of Azure Media Services to play adaptive streaming content in formats such as MPEG-DASH, Microsoft Smooth Streaming or Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). Media Player is also designed to select the correct technology based on the platform – HTML5 (MSE/EME), Adobe Flash Player or Microsoft Silverlight.

Develop faster and more simply

Regardless of the playback technology, there’s a simple interface to access APIs. Media Player gives you simplified development using standard HTML5 video tags. A unified JavaScript interface lets advanced customers create a media player experience without having to develop for specific platforms or features.
