Tips for Playing Film

Our embedded media player shown above above support almost all browsers, computers, tablets and smartphones. The player defaults to “auto mode” for Adaptive Streaming whereby the player dynamically selects (from moment to moment) the highest possible quality that your broadband connection and device will allow. The auto mode will throttle up and down as needed. Optionally you can select a specific speed by clicking on the “HD” button shown in the toolbar of the player while it is playing a film. Also, the player supports “full-screen mode” by clicking on the diagonal arrows on the far right side of the player’s toolbar. Full-screen mode is recommended. Pressing the “Escape” key will return the player to its normal display mode.

Subtitles as closed captions are available in multiple languages. To turn the closed caption, click on the “CC” button in the player’s toolbar and select the language you wish to display.
