Brightcove Player

Player v1.12.5

  • HLS: expose embedded ID3 tags as in-band metadata tracks
  • Load font icons over https when embedded on an https page
  • Allow scripts to modify global player properties (adding a custom tech or additional translations, for instance) before the player is created
  • Upgrade Video.js to 4.12.5

Player v1.11.1

  • HLS: fix for playlists with EXT-X-DISCONTINUITY directives
  • HLSe: fix for playlists with relative URLs to keys
  • Fix for progress bar styling when using the in-page embed in bootstrap pages
  • Upgrade Video.js to 4.12.1
  • Allow poster, sources, and text tracks specified in the embed code to override options in the player configuration
  • Fix for cross-origin text track loading on iOS devices

Dynamic Ingest

  • Jobs processed via dynamic ingest can auto-generate a thumbnail and poster image for the video if one is specified in the profile definition
  • Brightcove standard profiles now include image capture by default
  • Dynamic ingest now supports DRM packaging as well as transcoding to MP4, HLS, and Flash streaming
  • Jobs processed via dynamic ingest now store a copy of the renditions in the Video Cloud archive by default; this will not result in an increase in managed content
