I have my own players. Why should I use the Lightcast players?

Lightcast provides intelligent video players which are optimized for the use with the Lightcast CDN. They are bitrate-adaptive and device responsive. They can be customized in color, size and functionality and even be branded with your own logo, making your organization look "bigger than life" - just as if you had recently invested $100k or more into your own player development.

Without the Lightcast Players you will have to:

- build your own HLS fallback solution, as the URL works only for Flash players on computers, not for mobile devices
- build your own html5 player for mobile devices
- do your own multi-platform and multi-device testing
- be responsible for all functionalities of your player
- be responsible for all compatibilities with Lightcast

Please note that all development and Tech Support necessary on Lightcast's end to assist you with your own player development will be billed at the regular hourly rate.

If you have any further questions about this matter, please don't hesitate to submit a ticket, send us an email or call our office.
