Using the Video Player in AEM Dynamic Media

AEM Dynamic Media video player used to rely on Flash runtime to support adaptive video streaming on desktop clients and browsers became more aggressive on flash-based content streaming. With the introduction of HLS (Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming video delivery protocol), content can now be streamed without relying on flash.
