We’re thrilled to announce the release of Ceeblue’s video.js WebRTC plugin, a cutting-edge add-on to the world’s most popular video player. This new plugin seamlessly integrates WebRTC alongside HLS, Low-Latency HLS, and DASH, providing a comprehensive solution for live video.

video.js: community-supported and extensible

Video.js is a highly popular open-source HTML5 video player that has gained widespread adoption. Its popularity stems from its extensive feature set and the ease with which developers can integrate and customize it within their projects. Video.js provides a consistent viewing experience across various platforms and devices by leveraging HTML5 video capabilities while also providing fallbacks for older browsers that do not support HTML5 video natively.

One of the key advantages of Video.js is its extensive documentation and community support, which makes it accessible for developers of all skill levels. The framework includes a comprehensive API and a variety of guides that cover a range of topics, from basic setup to advanced customization and debugging​​​​. This level of support significantly reduces the learning curve and development time, making Video.js an attractive option for projects of any size.

Video.js seamlessly integrates with modern web development frameworks and libraries, such as Angular, React, and Vue.js. This integration capability makes it flexible and adaptable. 

Furthermore, Video.js is designed to be extensible, allowing developers to add new features or modify existing ones through plugins. This extensibility is further enhanced by its compatibility with various video streaming formats such as HLS and DASH, ensuring that developers can use it for a wide range of video delivery needs. The project’s GitHub repository showcases its vibrant ecosystem of contributions, including utilities for video manipulation and inspection, plugins for advertisements, and now, a plugin that allows viewers to harness the power of Ceeblue’s WebRTC real-time streaming.

WebRTC Fast-Start, Multi-Bitrate for video.js

With the Ceeblue video.js WebRTC plugin, implementing WebRTC streams has never been easier. The plugin provides a variety of features such as fast-start and multi-bitrate (MBR) capabilities, ensuring optimal performance for your WebRTC streams. Integrators can easily implement all the plugin’s features thanks to the provided examples, making the integration process straightforward and hassle-free​​​​​​.

SourceController – a Multi-Protocol Tool

One of the standout components of the plugin is the SourceController, which allows for automatic switching between different protocols. This ensures that your video streams maintain high quality and reliability, regardless of the network conditions. Whether or not your viewers’ browsers can support WebRTC or not at any given time, the SourceController provides a seamless experience for your viewers​​​​​​.
