Mux Player is built with Web Components. Web Components is a native browserAPI for defining custom HTML tags that can be used in the DOM. Mux Player is built on top of Media Chrome and the Mux Video HTML element. You can think of it like this:
- Mux Video HTML element handles the HLS playback tech behind the scenes and integration with Mux Data.
- Media Chrome is the UI layer. Both the Mux Video HTML element and Media Chrome are maintained and under active development by Mux.
Mux Player supports the most recent versions of evergreen browsers on desktop and mobile. Evergreen browsers are the modern browsers that are automatically updated:
- Chrome (Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, iPadOS, Android)
- Safari (Mac, iOS, iPadOS)
- Firefox (Mac, Windows, Linux, Android)
- Edge (Mac, Windows, Linux)
Mux Player is fully written in TypeScript version 4.5. If you are on an older version of TypeScript (pre-4.0), you will likely have to upgrade your TypeScript package in order to get the TypeScript benefits.
