About HTML5

Why does Viki use HTML5?

Viki uses a HTML5 video player, which lets you watch the same videos you love with a smoother experience.

With HTML5 you will see more consistent delivery of high frame-rates, thanks to HTML5 being easier on your CPU.

The reasons for the change are the following:

  • Better video performance across different system and browsers
  • Smoother streaming with less lag and stutter
  • Adaptive streaming, so you automatically get the best video quality that your bandwidth can support

Upcoming features 

  • AirPlay support. For now, users can use Airplay mirroring
  • Video player shortcut keys on the keyboard
