iOS Player SDK

NexPlayer’s iOS Player is the most comprehensive SDK for premium iOS video apps. Unlike AV Player, NexPlayer’s iOS Player supports both HLS and DASH streaming, no matter the iOS device or version. While AV Player is unable to support low latency, NexPlayer’s iOS video player supports ultra low latency with sub 3-second times and is the only iOS video player to support Widevine DRM protection.

Integrate the NexPlayer iOS Player into your iOS apps and provide an outstanding video playback experience to your users with a highly advanced and customizable feature list.

Why Nexplayer has the best video player for iOS?

Universal iOS Device &
Version Support

Only NexPlayer’s iOS Player is able to support all iOS devices (phones and tablets) and versions. Most competitors, whose players are based on AV Player, Apple’s closed-source framework, can only support iOS versions 9 and onwards.

Ultra Low Latency.

NexPlayer has been working extremely closely with AWS & Videon to bring our customers ultra low latency using HLS & DASH in our iOS player to achieve sub 3-second speeds. Unlike our competitors who use a modified AV Player, NexPlayer has developed its iPad & iPhone player in-house using proprietary code to allow for deep optimizations and greater stability.

When it comes to video playback, nothing matters more than protecting your content. NexPlayer’s iPad & iPhone video player uses state of the art Widevine DRM to prevent your streams’ content from being restreamed or stolen. As opposed to competitors who are unable to use Widevine in iOS devices, NexPlayer supports Widevine in all iOS devices and versions.
