Compatibility table sections:


Supported codecs

Support for a given codec depends on the targeted device/OS/browser to provide support for this codec. Current industry standard for cross-device delivery of video content is H.264/AAC. If multiple sets of codec are provided to the player it will automatically detect which codec to use based on device capabilities.

  • Chrome 31+
  • Safari 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 11.3+

(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. 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 ...)

(17) Requires macOS 10.11+ with Safari 10+

(19) 360 video on macOS Safari is only available in macOS Safari 11+

(21) Using Widevine DRM in an Android WebView requires the Widevine CDM to be available in that WebView. Older versions of Android System WebView may not come with that CDM so older Android devices (before Android 7) may not always be able to decode DRM encrypted content (an error message is shown to the viewer in that context).

(22) iOS 13+ and iPadOS 13+ only

(23) Playready DRM support in MS Edge 79+ is only available in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10

(24) Video ads will only be visible when the player is viewed inline. When the player has entered VR mode (immersive-vr), video ads will automatically be discarded.
