Browser Compatibility List with MovieStreamer HLS streams

MovieStreamer HLS uses the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) format. HLS is the only supported format on iOS devices so you must support it for your streaming services if you intend on streaming to those devices. However, it is not compatible with all browsers.

Version 6 of the JW Player (in its Premium and Ads versions) adds compatibility of HTTP Live Streaming for most browsers. JW Player is a player that you install on your server and it will rewrap the HLS streams into a flash compatible format. No conversion is needed nor is installation on the client side required. Check the compatibility list below.
