The Best Browser App for Streaming Videos on Your Handheld Devices
Posted on Friday, March 04, 2016
Technology giants tend to support and promote their own formats (audio, video) which makes it difficult to create solutions to enable delivery of content to all devices.
LearnArabic.Com makes use of streaming video for delivery of its course content. For desktop PCs, there is not an issue, however for hand held devices there are limitations because of the fact that technology giants work to their own standards and formats.
To access video content on your handheld device, we strongly recommend that you install the Puffin browser on your device. First, it is an amazingly fast browser. Secondly, it supports streaming through Flash. All you need to do is double click on the video splash screen. Third, it has a "trackpad" feature which mimics a mouse, a really useful feature.
Here are some details from their website:
1. Full screen video. For some videos, we provide a full-screen player option. The full-screen player leverages the native video player on your device, and thus provides a much smoother video streaming experience. However, this option is not completely available for some video websites (such as Hulu and other TV channel video sites).
2. Theater mode. After entering theater mode, Puffin Web Browser automatically maximize the size of your Flash content and allow you drag items directly. In normal mode, you need to use a little complicated gesture to drag an item. However, all you need to do is to directly press on the item and drag it in Theater mode.
3 Trackpad. With a virtual trackpad, all mouse operations on Desktop is the same here. You can use it to point accurately, drag items, show items by moving mouse over menus or scroll the mouse wheel in the right hand side of the trackpad.
