Hello, I'm trying to run the HTML5 player.
I did this example:
but what I see is here:
1. HTML5 delivery in the account is enabled:
2. Player HTML5 delivery is enabled:
3. Codec is H.264
So, What I'm doing wrong?...
Notice that all URL from this forum that I've tried
are not visible with HTML5 player:

The way that our players are delivered is that Flash is favored when it is installed. So:
if Flash is installed
If Flash is not installed
You are testing in what looks like Chrome with Flash installed. In order to test with desktop browsers you can add a param (URL or player snippet) called forceHTML and set it to true.
You should NOT deploy with forceHTML enabled though as some browser configurations do not provide the support needed for our HTML player to work (the H264 codec is the biggest item - neither Firefox nor IE support it).
Hope this helps,

Thank you for your answer.
<param name="forceHTML" value="true" />
is working for me if I want to force HTML5.
But I want to have flash player if the browser supports it
and to have HTML5 player if the browser doesn't have Flash.
It doesn't work for me.
I'm testing it under
Chrome with Flash player disabled.

I actually misspoke slightly. As is the HTML player will only render on devices that Brightcove actively supports which currently include Android and iOS. You can add the param htmlFallback = true to allow the HTML player to be rendered in desktop browsers without Flash and other devices that have proper HTML 5 / H264 support. This works well for Safari and Chrome.

Thanks, now it makes sence.
You should fix http://admin.brightcove.com/html5support/
because now I see in Chrome:
"Your browser is compatible with Brightcove HTML5 players"
wicth is not correct as I understand.
Or maybe at least add
"Your browser is compatible under some conditions"
