DASH Everywhere 3.1.1 Released with Chromecast 2 Support
Our DASH Everywhere version 3.1.1 has been released today to enable Chromecast 2 support!
As part of our commitment to offer leading-edge functionality, this release provides support for Google’s new version of Chromecast (often referred to as Chromecast 2 or 2015 model).
The second generation Chromecast was announced September 29th and now supports up-to-date Wi-Fi standards (802.11ac, 2.4/5 GHz) as well as featuring a faster processor for better casting performance. It is currently available in retail stores across the United States and our DASH Everywhere customers can support it for their users now.
DASH Everywhere is our cross-browser video player for MPEG-DASH and Smooth Streaming content that “just works” on all platforms. Using the best available playback technology (HTML5, Flash, or Silverlight) it supports multiple DRMs such as Google Widevine, Microsoft PlayReady, and Adobe Access. It takes the headache out of implementing different players for multiple platforms and DRM schemes by offering a unified solution with out-of-the box support for Chromecast, keeping the promise of “implement once for all browsers”.
Stay tuned for more updates to our DASH Everywhere player!
