DASH Everywhere 4.2 Released with Widevine Support for Firefox
Our DASH Everywhere cross-browser player version 4.2 was recently released enabling the use of Widevine™ for native HTML5 playback of protected video in Firefox®!
Our new DASH Everywhere version 4.2 is now ready to support native HTML5 playback of both MPEG-DASH as well as Smooth Streaming content using Firefox 47’s built-in Widevine Content Decryption Module (CDM). You will no longer need to rely on plugin-fallbacks or Firefox’s existing Adobe® Primetime CDM.
However, DASH Everywhere remains compatible with previous versions of Firefox, which means it will continue to fallback to either Silverlight (using Microsoft® PlayReady®) or Flash (using Adobe Primetime) for those using a version lower than 47.
Our player additionally already supports DRM protected HTML5 playback in Chrome™, Internet Explorer®, Edge, Safari, and Opera.
DASH Everywhere can also be seamlessly used with our licensing service, DRMtoday, to provide all needed DRM systems for protected playback across all browsers.
