Video Player > Fallback Video

This sample is designed for a larger screen size.


On mobile, try rotating your screen, view full size, or email to another device.

If you handle the browserNotSupported event of the jQuery Video Player control then you can execute custom code which manages the situation in which an end-user tries to browse the web page with a browser not supporting HTML5 video. In the following sample the jQuery Video Player is replaced by a Microsoft® Silverlight™ media control should the aforementioned situation occurs. Please view the sample in a browser without HTML5 video support (e.g. IE8) for the best understanding of how this sample works. The video used for this sample does not contain audio. Note: When running this sample on a mobile device, the default device video player controls are rendered, unless the Modernizr JavaScript library is undefined. If for some reason you don't have the Modernizr library available on your page, then the igVideoPlayer control is rendered, which in some cases may have fewer touch capabilities than the default device video player. That's why this sample uses the Modernizr library and in mobile contexts the igVideoPlayer falls back to the default device video player.
