Which browsers support DASH playback?

While all modern browsers support HTML5 <video> elements, many details of its implementation are still in flux. As a result, support for specific codecs, MSE, EME, DRM options, profiles, players etc. differs per browser, release, configuration and operating system.

We currently recommend testing with the latest DASH-IF reference player, or Google's Shaka player.


Make sure the following settings (available under chrome://flags) are configured:

Disable Media Source API Disable
Disable Encrypted Media Extensions Enable
Enable prefixed Encrypted Media Extensions Disable

The DASH-IF reference player works well with Windows and the Chrome, Edge or Firefox browsers. Google also supplies Shaka player.

See DASH demonstration for a demo using the players above.
