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.
