CloudCast Video Player (Connect VOD Player) Release Notes

2.4 – June 14, 2018

  • Keyboard shortcuts for all video player functions per WCAG 2.0.
  • Playback speed settings, from 0.5 to 2x.
  • Smart Adaptive (ABR) playback attempts to use the last successful rate rather than always starting at the lowest for new video plays.
  • Auto setting for Adaptive (ABR) dynamically shows which rate is playing.
  • Auto Start modes compatible with recent browser policy changes. Fixes having to click pause/play to get video going on some browsers. Unmute works properly for browsers that enforce muting on auto start.
  • Updated menus and layout for access to settings including captions, quality/rates, sharing, and playback speed.

Deprecates RTMP stream playback, as the industry has quickly moved away from RTMP/Flash for playback (RTMP ingest is still fully supported by CloudCast).
