Please use special test licence to make sure that our product works successfully
with your video stream source before purchasing a license.

License plans for one proxy license is assigned to a domain name or to an IP address.
That's enough to activate the license only for domain and theirs subdomains will be supported also.

Questions & Answers

Yes. All what you need is to include javascript in your code and to initialize the player as soon as the script is loaded. It can be done in any CMS or framework.
Proxy checks the address of the server from which the request came when establishes connections with the player. This avoids unnecessary strain from untrusted sources.
You need to choose the type of stream and to determine the data transfer protocol on the stage of initialization player. On the side of the proxy you have to install the corresponding protocol support module. More information you can find in the documentation.
The playback delay depends on several factors:
- the bandwidth of the internet channel
- the device performance where the player is run
- the server performance from which the stream is broadcasted
Under favorable conditions, the delay in playing back of the fullHD stream is around 1sec.
There are no restrictions. It depends on the performance of the hardware and communication channels.
No, it doesn't. The task of a proxy server is the splitting of input stream into data and control channels and delivery them to the client on selected network protocol. The player receives data and repacks it to mp4 format, which is supported by browsers, without decoding the streams themselves.
