The Player

The best performing and most deployed video player in the world.

The quest for performance

From the early days of online video, Flowplayer has been at the forefront of player design. The main principle is simple: the video is the star of the show, not the player. Of equal importance is performance. Flowplayer is the most lightweight player in the market, and we focus strongly on performance.

The smaller the player is, the faster it loads. This leads to higher play rates and better Ad fill rates.

Flowplayer Native

Early 2018 we will release our next player version, dubbed “Flowplayer Native”. It will break all records in terms of performance and speed. Sign up to take part in a private beta and experience the next generation player.
