Safari-only video streaming?



  • Hi, I've come across a video streaming that works only on Safari:[quote] [url=https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2015-804/]https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2015-804/[/url] [/quote] It says, on Vivaldi, "Streaming is available in Safari, and through WWDC apps." Is this just a browser sniffing? or does it use some incompatible technology? Ryo

    There's some browser sniffing in their code, but the main problem is that they are offering the video in the weird m3u8 format. Funny that they had the time to offer an ogv video just to display the message that it work only on Safari.



  • Thanks for the analysis!

    It's strange to me that Apple would allow such a practice. If intentional, it would nurture negative feelings toward Apple, instead of promoting Safari.
