API status: In Development


Browser and device support

App Suite uses mediaelement.js [1] as media player. The player uses native HTML5 audio and video elements plus it falls back to flash or silverlight if they are not available.

Every browser supports a different set of supported codecs and container formats. Follow this link to see which ones: http://mediaelementjs.com/#devices

Figure out version of mediaelement.js

We always try to integrate the latest version of mediaelement.js in order to get latest fixes. To figure out which version is integrated in your release, please run the following code:

// logs "2.11.0" in current development branch (April 2013)
require(['apps/mediaelement/mediaelement-and-player.js'], function () {

How to enable/disable the media player

In order to configure this server-side, just create a new property file or append to existing appsuite.properties (mind the double-slash; this in not a typo!):

io.ox/files//audioEnabled = true|false
io.ox/files//videoEnabled = true|false
