Automatically play back on the most popular devices

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

Develop faster and more simply

Regardless of the playback technology, there’s a simple, unified interface to access APIs. Azure Media Player offers simplified development using standard HTML5 video tags. A unified JavaScript interface lets advanced users create a media player experience without the need to develop for specific platforms or features. Learn more in the Azure documentation
