The Dailymotion HTML5 video player is the same fully-featured product across all devices, ensuring seamless playback on mobile, web, smart TVs and game consoles.
While the experience for the viewer is the same wherever they are, the player does optimise to the strengths of each device.
So what happens when you are using a hybrid device, benefiting from both a touch screen and a keyboard + mouse experience?
We have many users and partners that utilise our player on these 2-in-1 devices. In order to stay up to date with these interchangeable behaviours, we launched "Touch" mode which can be toggled on and off depending on what controls and interaction optimisation the user wants to use.
On hybrid devices, our player will be optimised for touch controls just like on a mobile, so "Touch mode" will be activated by default.
If you want to change this behaviour you can simply turn it off in the settings. With "Touch mode" disabled you will be free to use the keyboard and your mouse to control the player, just as you would on desktop.
