Media Services 3rd Party Player Samples


This repository contains samples, documentation, and platform/browser feature tables for using popular 3rd party player frameworks that support HLS and/or MPEG-DASH delivery from Azure Media Services (AMS).

These are the main components of this repository:

  1. Set up

  2. Samples

  3. Test results

Set up

This project uses PowerShell setup scripts to generate content (VOD and Live) in Azure Media Services and provides tools to test the 3rd party players in different combinations of features, streaming formats, and content protection.

For example, this is the Index page generated after running the setup scripts. It contains the playback endpoints for all the features, formats, and content protection options available in Azure Media Services along with links to test them on each 3rd party player sample:



The repository contains a sample implementation of each player. The sample is a minimal player implementation using captioning and content protection (DRM and Encryption).

To see the sample code, please check:
