HTML5 compatibility with S3Media Stream
S3Media Stream™ is HTML5 compatible, therefore iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices can play videos and audio via our plugin.
The technique works like this: When JW player discovers that Flash is supported by the browser, it will play your video with all the features offered by the plugin. When it discovers a browser that does not supports Flash but supports HTML5, it will trigger the Flash fail-over feature and switch to HTML5 mode where it plays the video without the plugin features.
When a non Flash browser is found without HTML5 capability, fail-over switches to a download link, which will be an expiring URL if you use private media.
