Getting started with Viblast Player

Before you start using the player, you need to ensure that your streams are CORS enabled (see Before you start).

Viblast Player has two separate integration scenarios for two different use cases: the W3C-standard <video> tag present in all modern Web browsers, or the Video.js JavaScript library. Before setting up Viblast, you need to determine which alternative is a better fit for your situation. The configuration process is fairly simple and it's easy to switch from one to the other (or even use both at the same time), so don't worry if you change your mind later on.

The video tag option is generally preferred by people who want an entirely custom player setup – with specific controls, options offered to the viewer, or look&feel – and closer control over it. There is no Flash fallback in this case.

The Video.js option, by contrast, is more suited to the needs of people that have Video.js already integrated with their platform, or simply want a more ready-made player setup with decent styling and usability that can be further customized. It provides a Flash fallback in older browsers that do not support MSE (see section 'What Is Viblast Player's Availability in Non-Mobile Browsers?')
