From www to non-www and opposite. It really matters!

October 5, 2014 at 10:53 pm

This is very important to have website accessible only as one URL schema, with or without “www”.
Even Google says about it

 If you don't specify a preferred domain, we may treat the www and non-www versions of the domain as separate references to separate pages.

In short words this means that you risk duplicated pages if you don’t care about preferred URL.

Site URL is also very important for javascript, including one that Nuevoplayer setup code use.
If your site is accessed with “www” prefix, but javascript attempts to read feeds from URL without “www”, this will end with javascript Cross Domain Policy error, and it may completely fail to execute, will not load HTML5 player.

The solution is simple.

Multiple video players on same page

October 1, 2014 at 8:35 pm

Many people ask if it is possible to use multiple instances of Nuevoplayer on same web page.
The answer is “YES”, though of course it requires some understanding of HTML. First of all next Nuevoplayer instance must refer to different HTML object ID, and player java script setup code must be correct for it.
Whatever, it’s not very difficult to set multiple players on page, each with different media source(s). Just watch example below. It works both, on desktop and mobile browsers (HTML5)

How to setup responsive video player

September 18, 2014 at 3:32 am

Nuevoplayer is well prepared for responsive layouts. All inner objects well fit player even for small player size in both: flash and html5 versions.
However first player’s parent object must be also responsive and must keep aspect ratio when resized.
See Nuevoplayer example below and try to resize browser to some smaller size. Watch how player fits parent object to minimum 320 pixels width.

Multiple video sources for HTML5 player, including HD switch option

September 17, 2014 at 1:06 pm

Nuevoplayer allows to define multiple video sources to play.
Most of visitors see only default video and optionally HD video alternative available to play through player.
However it is possible to define more video file instances for player to support almost every possible browser and device.

MPEG-4 movie atom

August 22, 2014 at 2:53 am

There is a lot of misunderstanding about mp4 type videos that cannot play until not fully loaded.
Some people get even frustrated and do not want to listen or learn about MPEG-4 movie atom.
Well, when MPEG-4 movie atom not present at the begining of the video file structure, the player (any player) has no access to important information like video keyframes, duration, dimension, etc. It will keep buffering until video fully loaded. Once video fully loaded, it will start to play, but only if MPEG-4 movie atom is located at the end of file.
You can find good article in Adobe resources explaining the importance of MPEG-4 movie atom

HTML5 best strategies

August 20, 2014 at 4:52 pm

As many probably already know HTML5 support for video  formats varies from browser to browser.

Most popular format, currently supported by majority browsers and mobile devices is MP4  h264 encoded. However if you set HTML5 player as default player for desktop browsers it will not play MP4/h264 in such important browsers like Firefox and Opera.

H.264/MPEG-4 video compression format  is patented  algorythm and commercial users of it are expected to pay patent high licensing fee. Firefox and Opera are not happy with it.

Responsive layout and Nuevoplayer

About month ago I announced completely redesigned layout for website.

While working with styles and layout I found few things that could be improved for Nuevoplayer, our main product, especially for Nuevoplayer HTML5 version.
