JoVE: Technical Requirements

The JoVE video player is compatible with HTML5 and Adobe Flash. Older browsers that do not support HTML5 and the H.264 video codec will still use a Flash-based video player. JoVE recommends downloading the newest version of Flash, but they support all versions 10 and above.
