1. Workshop: Making the transition from Flash to HTML5  | Monday May 15 | 9am – 12pm | W2

As Flash continues to decline, HTML5 video technologies increasingly bring the promise of heightened performance and better QoE. This workshop, part of the Streaming Media University program, provides an in-depth look at HTML5 players, their features and strengths, as well as the open-source media engine frameworks available on the market today. Using interactive examples, we’ll discuss legacy workflows, DRM, ads, the ins-and-outs of HTML5 players, and how to choose the one that’s perfect for you.

2. How-to: Adapting Your Video Player’s ABR Logic to Improve QoS | Wednesday May 17 | 10:30am – 11:30am | D201

Delivering video that is all at once adapted to a multitude of content, devices and network conditions is indeed a challenge. While adaptive bitrate is often explored from a compression standpoint, the ABR logic within your video player plays a pivotal role in your QoS. It is fair to say that striking an optimal balance between achieving the highest resolution without causing stalls is a complex task. This tutorial delves deep into the inner workings of ABR logic. We review the basics of how web and mobile players handle ABR, before diving into the different ways these algorithms are built. Lastly, we offer practical advice on how to optimize QoS with just a few tweaks of your player.
