Brightcove Player v5.0.9
Brightcove Player 5.0.9 is the latest Brightcove Player to incorporate Video.js 5. We have updated the version numbering so that the major version of the Brightcove Player matches the version of Video.js that it is based on. Version 5.0.9 will be the successor to 1.14.x for all unlocked players. No action is required to receive this update.
Among the more significant changes is the introduction of a new HLS implementation based on Media Source Extensions. This allows playback of HLS video without Flash on most newer browsers, including recent versions Firefox and Chrome. Flash HLS fallback is still provided for browsers without MSE, such as IE 11 on Windows 7. The Brightcove Player uses native HLS playback where available, notably on Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge. This version has been extensively tested for backward compatibility with 1.14 players and page customizations.
Pages that include the following plugins will be excluded from the initial update.
If you are using these plugins please make sure your players have been locked (described here). These plugins will be updated in the coming weeks.
