Feature Highlights

New Look

We’ve decided it’s time for a refresh with our new Material theme. Take a look at our updated Features page for more screenshots.

UTF-8 Support

A long-time request has now been fulfilled and your customers should no longer have difficulty with UTF-8 Characters within the panel.

Low Latency HLS Streaming

Low Latency streaming once was only working with Flash based streams, which, as we all know flash is no longer supported across most modern browsers. We have now provided renewed support for Low Latency HLS Streaming both as a new Service Type (Live Streaming Low Latency) as well as a new option under the Feature tab for Wowza Streaming services. This is configured with the default options as specified within the article by Wowza Streaming Engine -> Configure HLS Chunks. We will be further working to provide finer controls over low latency service options.

Support for the free Video.JS video player and  the ability for customers to choose between video players
