KeyOS WebPlay: a DRM-forged HTML5 player SDK

Posted by Mark Zeldes on Jun 7, 2022 9:00:00 AM

Every content streaming newcomer needs to decide on links in the content supply chain. It goes like this: encoding -> packaging -> storing -> playback. Today we are going to focus on the last bit – the playback. Some of our new customers come with a HTML5 player in their mind right away, others ask for our advice. Well, now we have an answer for the latter; BuyDRM introduces our newly updated and feature-rich HTML5 player solution – KeyOS WebPlay.

Why WebPlay?

Some of the readers may have a valid question – why should we pay for a player when there are multiple open-source solutions on the web? Indeed, most of your player needs may be covered by those tools, especially if you have a free developer on staff willing to dedicate his job to maintaining and debugging a HTML5 player which comes with no support and no explicit documentation.

As with all our products and services, for KeyOS WebPlay BuyDRM provides 24/7 technical support, as well as guidelines with code examples for every feature. You don’t have to be a front-end guru to be able to set up our player, and even if you are not able to - we are there to assist you along the way.

Some will wonder: “Okay, your player is better than open-source ones due to the support level, but how does it compare to other premium players on the market?”. Well, thank you, I was expecting this question. The core difference between WebPlay and other players is that we put major emphasis on seamless DRM-protected content delivery, as well as the easiness of its setup.

KeyOS WebPlay supports playback on every HTML5 platform. Furthermore – it will analyze your playlist and pick for playback only those assets which are supported by the current browser and operational system.

And one more thing – when other player vendors encounter drm-related playback issues, who do you think they turn to for help? By picking KeyOS WebPlay you save a huge amount of precious time on support, since we are both player and DRM specialists.
