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 like 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.
