Hi guys, so you have probably read the news by now: Safari 17.1 now brings the new Managed Media Source API to iPhone.
The streaming media industry has been waiting this for years, so this is definitely a step in the right direction. But let me try to break down the news for you to put it back in context:
Yes, we will. As soon as we are done with the testing and have a better understanding about how actual devices react to MSS we will add support for it. Though as Apple recommends, native HLS will still be the preferred option on Apple devices. MSS can however enable MPEG-DASH streaming on iOS and some users may have a need to support MSS in iPhone (DVR UI, Quality selection menu) so we are already working on adding support for MSS. Check our release history for updates on player features.
