Plyr, a HTML5 media player, will be incorporated into the next Galaxie Blog version

Plyr, an open-source HTML5 media player, is now the default media player in Galaxie Blog. Plyer will automatically render video or audio when Galaxie Blog finds supported content. To improve page performance, Galaxie Blog will also lazy load the media for you. Plyr is a simple, lightweight, accessible, and customizable HTML5 media and audio player. It supports HTML Video, Audio, YouTube and Vimeo. It has support for video captions in multiple languages and has added revenue capabilities. For a full list of features, see the Plyr site at

If you have a Kendo UI license, you can optionally use the Kendo HTML 5 media player, however, the Kendo Media player is not as functional as Plyr, and it is not open source.
