Compatibility table support notes

(1) When version for a browser/WebView is not specified we support the latest public versions for this browser/WebView

(2) Android 5+ only

(3) Muted autoplay support is available in Chrome 53+ for Android

(4) Android 6+ only

(5) Where DVR controls are not available the player will handle the DVR stream as simple live stream

(6) Muted autoplay support is available in iOS 10+

(7) DVR controls are available when player is in fullscreen mode on iOS 11+ otherwise the player will handle the DVR stream as simple live stream

(8) 360 video on iOS is only available in iOS 11+ with HLS or MP4 progressive download

(9) These are expected to work, but are not actively tested by the Radiant Media Player team

(10) On Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 video ads in HTML5 video are fully supported with MP4 progressive download - for HLS streaming which still requires Flash, Flash-based video ads are still available but deprecated

(11) On macOS Safari 11+ only muted autoplay is available

(12) We support the latest LTS desktop Ubuntu - other Debian-based distros could work but are not actively tested by the Radiant Media Player team

(13) In order to render H.26* video or AAC audio through HTML5 video Firefox for Linux generally requires installing additional codecs that may not be available by default with the OS. Otherwise Firefox may fallback to Flash or not be able to playback content. You may refer to this article for more information.

(14) We provide support for any Google Cast compliant receiver devices (Chromecast, Android TV ...)

(15) We provide support for any Apple AirPlay compliant receiver devices (Apple TV, Airport Express, AirPlay-compatible speakers ...)

(16) Requires Safari on iOS 11.2+


Legacy support

The following devices may be supported with a simple HTML video/audio tag or Flash to allow for basic media playback. Support for those devices is not guaranteed:

  • iOS 7.* or below
  • Android 4.2.* or below
  • Internet Explorer 9 & 10
  • UC browser for Android: in some regions UC browser for Android is quite popular but since it does not allow for custom HTML5 video player to render we default to a simple HTML video tag for displaying content for this browser
