Playing Your Live Stream

To show your live streaming camera on your own web site, you will need a player embedded in your page. This is a simple task to perform, you simply paste the code we give you into your page where you want the live picture to appear. There are a few player options to choose from, each with different features and styles with customisation options for Business and Professional accounts, and HTTPS is now available on all accounts. View this page on a PC or Mac to show the complete selection available.

Select a player to try from the drop down list.

Mobile compatible player works on all devices.

View this page on a PC or Mac to see all the styles available.

Take some time and have a look at the different player options and read the information on each player to help you make a decision on what is going to be the best for your site. Player types 1 & 2 are fully compatible with computers and mobile phones, tablets and ipads etc. These will look the same on any device and are the best choices for most websites. If very low latency on your stream is the most important factor then our low latency HTML5 player would be the choice and this player also has time shift playback capability too - which is like an instant replay. But the low latency player is not quite so cross device compatible as our main players. So use the player tester above on computers and mobiles to see whats best for you. Mouse over the live picture to select any hidden options such as start, pause, full screen, time shift playback and volume control. On Business and Professional accounts you can have the player text customised and have a graphic logo overlaid on the live picture as you will see on some of the examples. Now you can also add some player customisation to basic and standard accounts from our Streaming Extra's selection too.
Player 1 - Standard Player For All Devices

Our standard HTML5 player is highly popular and included on all accounts. It is available in 3 styles, smooth, regular and classic and its responsive design means it will fit your page exactly as you want it, altering its dimensions as your page changes its size to cater for mobile devices.

The player will show your feed on all modern computer browsers under Windows, MAC and Linux operating systems plus mobile phones, Ipads and other tablet devices. It will even work on older non HTML5 browsers and computers too so it is a highly compatible choice for your web site.

This player will keep the same appearance across computers and mobiles, ipads and tablets etc. 

On computers the picture will start up automatically as soon as your viewer logs on to your camera page. On portable devices you simply tap the play button to sart the player running.

Customisation options are available on business and professional accounts to enhance the experience for your visitors.

Customisation options for these accounts include:- background colour, loading screen, custom logo overlay and branded control bar. plus off air custom video, and custom test cards.

HTTPS compatibility is available on all accounts.

Player 2 - Delux Player For All Devices

Our Delux HTML5 player is available with our business and professional accounts. Just as with the standard player It has responsive design and will fit your page exactly as you want it, altering its size as your page changes to fit mobile screens.

The player will show your feed on all modern computer browsers under Windows, MAC and Linux operating systems plus mobile phones, Ipads and other tablet devices and on older non HTML5 browsers and computers too.

The player keeps the same appearance across computers and mobiles, ipads and tablets etc.

On computers the picture will start up automatically as soon as your viewer logs on to your camera page. On portable devices you simply tap the play button to sart the player running.

This player can also provide multi bit rate streams plus off air custom video, and custom test cards on the professional account.

HTTPS compatibility is available on all accounts.

Player 3 - Low Latency + Time Shift

Our Low Latency HTML5 player provides extremely low stream latency using the latest "web socket and media extension" technology.

This player can also be used with our time shifted playback feature for instant rewind which is included with the professional account, and this can be added to any other account too providing this player is used.

This player is not quite as cross browser/device compatible as players 1 & 2. It will run on Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer on Windows and on Safari on the Mac. It will also operate on Chrome and Firefox on Android devices but Apple IOS does not yet support it so when Apple devices try to view the stream with this player it will switch in the standard player instead.


Customisation is limited to a splash screen, colour of the control bar, off air custom video, and custom test cards. Customisation only available on certain accounts.

This player fits the bill If you need low latency as a priority with computer viewers as your main target audience and is the smoothest for use with the Live Channel feature.

Player 4 - Flash Player (old style)

Flash is now pretty much obsolete in computer and mobile browsers. Although still in use in some systems, most browsers are steering away from it and will no doubt stop supporting it in the not too distant future.

However, some much older browsers and operating systems are not capable of using HTML5 or other technologies so this player may still have some use for specialised web sites that are reluctant to give up Flash.

Also many smart TV browsers have embedded flash and are not HTML5 compliant and many set top boxes still use embedded flash in their operating systems for displaying live video content.

So we still offer a Flash only player for those systems and users who are intent on using Flash, and this player is also switched in automatically by our low latency player if it detects an old flash only system is trying to play the live feed.

Customisation is limited to a logo and splash screen, but the system does allow for up to 12 x hours of timeline - instant playback if required.

More Player Options

The players demonstrated are the most commonly used and have the most compatibility for streaming to computers and mobile devices in use today.

However we can also provide streams in other formats along with players for them if you need them for a particular use or project.

These include:-

Windows Media - Windows Media Player

Microsoft Smooth Streaming - Microsoft Silverlight

MPEG2-TS Broadcasting - Set Top Boxes

These methods are not cross browser compatible and are not really suited for mobile viewing but some specialised sites still use these methods for in house broadcasting or for specific target audiences.

Just contact us if you need your broadcast in one of these other formats.

Our players are simple to install in your own web pages. They are brought in to your page via an "iframe" so as player and browser technology changes the players are updated and brought into your web site automatically, meaning you dont have to keep changing codes or parameters, our players will always be up to date and giving you the best media experience to share with your site visitors.
