Our main goal is to make it as easy as possible to stream adaptive bitrate video and audio using modern browser technologies. We try to keep the library light, simple, and free from third-party dependencies. Everything you need to build and deploy is in the sources.
For details on what's coming next, see our development roadmap.

|Browser||Windows||Mac||Linux||Android||iOS >= 13||ChromeOS||Other|
We support iOS 13+ through Apple's native HLS player. We provide the same
top-level API, but we just set the video's
src element to the manifest/media.
So we are dependent on the browser supporting the manifests.
We have another project called Shaka Player Embedded which offers the same features and similar APIs for native apps on iOS. This project uses its own media stack, which allows it to play content that would otherwise not be supported. This supports both DASH and HLS manifests.
|Format||Video On-Demand||Live||Event||In-Progress Recording|
You can also create a manifest parser plugin to support custom manifest formats.
DASH features supported:
DASH features not supported:
Only supported on browsers with SourceBuffer.mode=sequence support

HLS features not supported:
Only supported on browsers with Media Source Extensions SourceBuffer support

Other DRM systems should work out of the box if they are interoperable and compliant to the EME spec.
Shaka Player supports:
Subtitles are rendered by the browser by default. Applications can create a text display plugin for customer rendering to go beyond browser-supported attributes.

The Shaka team doesn't have the bandwidth and experience to provide guidance and support for integrating Shaka Player with specific frameworks, but some of our users have successfully done so and created tutorials to help other beginners.
