  • HTML5 Player Framework Preview Examples - This is a set of examples showing how to setup and initialize the HTML5 Player Framework Preview. This includes examples of how to use the Player Framework with both the HTML5 video tag and Silverlight player.
    • Note: Be sure to unblock the zip file before using.
    • Note: In order to test Silverlight fallback in the included sample app, you need to run the html and xap files over http (e.g. over localhost).
  • Silverlight Players - This has two pre-built players that include support for IIS Smooth Streaming and Progressive Download. These players are built specifically for the HTML5 Player Framework to be used in a fallback or fall forward scenario.

This is a preview release of the new HTML5 Player Framework

  • This release is not meant for production use and may contain bugs or performance issues.
  • The hosted Silverlight .xap files referenced in the samples are not meant for use on other sites and the links will change.
