THEOplayer can be used by broadcasters as playback solution to easily stream their content to all popular platforms with the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol. This is possible without the need for viewers to install any third-party plugins such as Flash, Silverlight or QuickTime. THEOplayer is the first fully HTML5 video player for adaptive bitrate streaming of online video content with support for all popular platforms.

Pieter-Jan Speelmans will be part of the discussions and share proven strategies and tactics for replacing Flash by HTML5 for video streaming with THEOplayer. His session will help attendees understand how broadcasters and content publishers of online video can all benefit from THEOplayer to simplify their streaming infrastructure and bring their online video content more easily to all popular consumer devices and platforms. There is no longer any need to broadcast content in different formats and maintain different playback solutions. Video content in a single format, broadcasted to all popular platforms, with a single player. That is how easy THEOplayer makes it for broadcasters.

This session details what these extensions are, how they’re being supported by the different browser and tools vendors, and how soon those delivering premium content will switch over from plug-in-based technologies to these standards. If you are considering replacing Flash with HTML5 standards-based technologies, this session details how and when you can do it.
