We are extremely proud to announce the release of our new video player. Our team has re-written every line of code and redesigned every pixel to offer you a beautiful, highly responsive video experience.

The new MediaCore Video Player offers a variety of upgrades and new features:

Fast and responsive playback: The new player has been built from the ground up for lean performance. At just  22KB, it loads noticeably faster than our old player, and now both HTML5 and Flash players support hardware accelerated playback for a smoother experience.

Full support for all browsers and devices: Our intelligent technology automatically detects which browser or mobile device you’re using and provides you with either the HTML5 or Flash player.

1080p playback for large screens: We now offer 1080p encoding and playback, so you can share videos in even higher resolution. This feature is great if you’re using large TV screens or projectors in your classroom.

Speed up or slow down playback: Increase or decrease playback speed using a simple toggle, allowing you to switch through a range of speeds from 0.5x to 2x in a snap.

This is a major release, but it's only the first step towards bringing a full suite of educational features to the MediaCore Video Player. We’re working on support for closed captions and full-text transcripts, as well as a new system to add rich annotations such as video chapters and quizzes to your videos.

The new video player is available today on your MediaCore site. We hope you love it as much as we do! If you have any thoughts or comments, let us know – we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback.
