How to build a Smooth Streaming Windows 8 JavaScript application with advanced features?

How to build a Smooth Streaming Windows 8 JavaScript application with advanced features? | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

The Smooth Streaming Client SDK for Windows 8 enables playback of Smooth Streaming content in conjunction with the Windows 8 HTML5< video> element and XAML MediaElement by using the default APIs such as Play and Pause. Besides basic playback, the Smooth Streaming SDK has rich features like the ability to restrict the quality levels, do Live DVR, switch audio streams, and listen for status updates (such as quality level changes) and error events, and so on.


In this post, I'll cover how to enable these rich features of Smooth Streaming SDK for Windows 8. For rich applications powered by these features and general player development, I strongly encourage you to use the Microsoft Media Platform Player Framework. You can get more information about the Player Framework here.

WebM and WebP Hand Ported to JavaScript for All Browsers

WebM and WebP Hand Ported to JavaScript for All Browsers | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Dominik Homberger has been very busy over the last few months working on porting first, Google’s WebP image format to JS and today launching his WebM video decoder in JavaScript. No, these are not Emscripten compiled versions - these are hand ports directly from the original C++ source code. And yes, both of these ports work in all browsers, not just the latest Chrome and Firefox - all browsers. The WebP port works in IE6+ with a flash fallback for the canvas element, as well as, of course, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera and the mobile browsers on Android and iOS. The WebM video port works in IE9+, as well as all the other browsers mentioned before including the mobile ones. That is seriously impressive!

ofmlabs codecs : A suite of JavaScript audio codecs

ofmlabs codecs : A suite of JavaScript audio codecs | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Web browsers are becoming more and more powerful, and new APIs like the Web Audio API and Audio Data API are making the web an ever more interesting and dynamic place. At ofmlabs we are invested in improving the state of audio on the web, and with JSMad showed that decoding audio purely in JavaScript is possible thanks to these APIs and the hard work of browser makers and spec authors. And now we've done it again. Introducing alac.js, a port of the recently open sourced Apple Lossless decoder to JavaScript. Now it is possible to play MP3 and Apple Lossless even in browsers without native support.
