- Only real machines are supported. While we expect that the player will generally work on virtual machines and Hosted Virtual Desktop (HVD), we do not test on these and do not support them.
- Wherever Flash Player is needed, the latest version is required.
- The “Stock” browser found on earlier versions of Android (often with an icon named “Internet”) has a number of unworkable issues with video playback and is not recommended.
- Brightcove Player is known to fail when Prototype.js v1.6 is present and may work where v1.7 is present. Brightcove Player does not support any usage in a shared environment with any version of Prototype.js.
