Adding Video Player to Streaming Package

U Asar 2016-07-30 08:59:29 UTC in WMSPanel functionality

Hello Yury or anyone involved in development.

Now you've Streaming server, Management Panel, Transcoder for streamer, how about adding a video player (cloud or self hosted) that can be controlled through WMSPanel offering HLS / MPEG-DASH Streams with Advertising Support? In simple terms all things that current available players like JWPlayer, BitDASH offers.

May be too much to ask, but can be a possibility to look into providing one stop solutions to clients.

thanks for good feedback first of all !
JW, Bitmovin, Dash.js are very good players and making copies is not our style. What do you think we can add in that field so that our new player will be valuable ?

Thank you for getting back Alex, you are not essentially copying the players as if you see all the industry players that you have in demo are capable of HLS/MPEG-DASH, all offer cloud based and self hosting solutions, if they had to think alike that we are copying then there wouldn't be a new player like TheoPlayer in market.

What sets your player apart is one stop control in form of WMSPanel, where if someone has to setup Nimble Streamer and Transcoder on their server, still they have to rely on third party resources (players) to run the content at client side, all players have different way of implementation. Don't you think it would be better if client comes in with a streaming scenario and end up getting everything from input to final output at one end? I am sure there will be plenty looking to have one stop solution like this one.

In simple words, you may not be adding value directly to your player creating something that already exists in market, but to your existing offerings.
