There are dozens of different options to deliver video to mobile devices today, but none are more promising than MPEG-DASH and actual open standard for HTTP Delivery of media. Digital Primates has been building DASH players for several platforms, including Desktop, Browser, Flash, Connected TVs and Mobile Devices. One of the more interesting projects they are involved in is dash.js, a purely HTML/JavaScript solution for building video players. A cutting edge technology, dash.js isn’t yet supported on a wide variety of devices, but the list of devices it supports is growing every day.

In this session Jeff will explore the DASH standard, discuss how dash players are built, dig through the dash.js codebase and see dash playing on mobile devices.
