    • VideojsAdapter
    • ShakaAdapter
    • HlsAdapter
    • DashjsAdapter
    • HTMLVideoElementAdapter

Removed

Fixed

  • Fixed incorrect handling of videoWindowWidth and videoPlaybackWidth in HLS.js and Shaka.
  • When loading a new video with Bitmovin Player v7 and v8, a new impression id was assigned before the last sample of the old impression has been sent to the server.
  • Fixed error being thrown when hls.destroy() is called because of a not correctly cleared timeout.

Known Issues

  • getPlayerVersion will return unkown for video.js if included via npm or requirejs
  • Not calling player.load in the same code-path after new bitmovin.player.Player() will skew the PLAYER_STARTUPTIME metric.
  • Bitrate Information is not collected when using Native Safari Playback using the HTMLVideoElementAdapter. This is due to the limitations of the Browser and not a bug.
  • The HTML5 adapters and the VideoJs adapter won't assign a new impression id on Analytics.sourceChange()
  • Destroying a Shaka instance will not correctly clear all event handlers on the VideoElement. Re-Using the VideoElement with another Shaka instance will lead to the impression being tracked twice
