About HTML5

Mariliam -

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 to be released soon on the new video player:

- Chromecast support. For now, users can use cast tab 
- Air Play support. For now, users can use Airplay mirroring
- Video player shortcut keys on keyboard
