Key Considerations

Iframe Player

  • Advantages: Offers quick and straightforward implementation into websites and applications (webview).
  • Limitations: Provides restricted control and customization within the container, and may have less seamlessly integration with your website and application's UI.

Player SDK

  • Advantages: Allows for full customization, advanced control, and seamless integration into your website and application, providing users with a consistent experience.
  • Limitations: Require more development effort and the workload will expand when supporting multiple platforms (e.g., Web, iOS, Android).
