Azure Media Player overview
Microsoft Azure Media Services allows for content to be served up with HLS, DASH, Smooth Streaming streaming formats to play back content. Azure Media Player takes into account these various formats and automatically plays the best link based on the platform/browser capabilities. Media Services also allows for dynamic encryption of assets with PlayReady encryption or AES-128 bit envelope encryption. Azure Media Player allows for decryption of PlayReady and AES-128 bit encrypted content when appropriately configured.
HTTPS playback is required for Widevine encrypted content.
