WebMoviePlayer uses the built-in HTML5 video player on all browsers. HTML5 video supports MP4, WebM and Ogg video formats. All browsers support MP4 so that is generally recommended.

Browser supported video formats:

Browser MP4 WebM Ogg
Internet Explorer Yes No No
Edge Yes Optional No
Chrome Yes Yes Yes
Firefox Yes Yes Yes
Safari Yes No No
Opera Yes Yes Yes

You can provide URLs for up to three movie formats to support different screen size/bandwidth requirements as chosen by the web browser based on how it is connected to the web:

URL Screen Size/Bandwidth
DesktopURL Large Size, High-Bandwidth
MobileWiFiURL Small-Size, High-Bandwidth
MobileCellularURL Small-Size, Low-Bandwidth

The URLs must be actual URLs that would also work in a web browser. They cannot be local file URLs from a FolderItem.
