Engage is based on OSMF. We're looking into Fluid Player.

Matterhorn Engage Player

Is documented at

Strobe Media Playback

There is a fallback from Flash to HTML5, but does not have an option to specify source (RTMP or mp4) for each type of player. 


Meeting 04/27/2012

Engage seems to be not flexible and too tightly coupled to Matterhorn. Getting help isn't easy.

FluidPlayer looks good, has some flexibility, but they're not interested in Flash video. Fullscreen API isn't supported in IE but is useful. We could probably fall back to Flash fullscreen. For now we'll try to make FluidPlayer work with some flash player.

RTMP streaming seems to be unavoidable, as some security barrier has to be there to discourage piracy (though impossible to prevent)
