Are there any plans to support HTML5 playback in the foreseeable future?

It's this time of week already? Nope none. They paid licensing for flash rights not HTML5

If they went HTML5, it'd be to easy to bypass premium requirements on mobile devices.

They don't need to pay to use the flash player. It's practically open source.

Another HTML5 thread? These seem to come up a lot more lately. Can't anyone use the search feature? It works, honest.

*sigh*

Anyway...I'll leave this here like I have been.

If you use Chrome you can use HTML5 through an extension.

I don't know what would cause it to be a problem with one browser but not another besides flash things. I can't fix that but I can offer an alternative in the form of a chrome extension I made that can be found here. It replaces the default flash player with an HTML5 one that plays the HLS streams that are served to the apps.

Let me know if it helps.


Actually I'll also link this as there is more than just HTML5 that people might be interested in.

Beardfist also has an extension for Firefox now (provided you are using version 50 or later, which the "general public" version isn't up to yet).

Nice. Didn't come across it in that group so had no idea. I use Chrome anyway so never felt a need to really seek it out either.

No I mean they bought a license to play the VIDEO on flash due to its "security" features.

I know HTML security is much much different than flash security when it comes to protecting the video from being copied. Its actually a huge issue with most streaming sites because HTML 5 provides a way of playing the video but no way of securing it. Many other competitors are having issues proving to the license holders that they can keep their video safe and free from piracy. Flash is just generally accepted as safe even if its not......

Thanks for pointing that out, asharka. I wonder if someone could do the same tho for the US platform? Or is it even allowed. It'd be easier if there was like just a website that could ~act as a flash viewer in the non-flash browser. Xfinity is another that requires flash & has no smart TV apps. Thank goodness Viki's site works on its own, so I'm not even bothered by their not having an LG app either.

It seems my "smart" devices keep turning out not to be good enough, sigh can't wait til I get a real computer..
