THEOplayer HTML5 SUPPORT MATRIX

THEOplayer supports HTTP Live Streaming and MPEG-DASH in HTML5. There is no need to install any apps or plugins such as Flash, Silverlight or Quicktime. AES-128 Encryption and DRM-protection will, on top of that, keep your content safe at all times.

* Note that IE10 and IE11 on Windows 7 do not have the MSE/EME API available which is required to playback DRM protected video content in HTML5. As a consequence, it is technically not possible for any HTML5-based video player to playback DRM protected content on these browsers in Windows 7.
