Depending on the playback capability on the browser, cfmediaplayer offers alternate playback plan. cfmediaplayer supports both Flash to HTML and HTML to Flash fall back.

The fall back feature applies in the following scenarios:

Scenario

Falls back to HTML 5 video playback, provided browser is HTML 5 compliant and video source is supported by the browser.If not, results in an error and displays the player container.

Browser does not have HTML 5 video playback capability

Checks for Flash player.If Flash player is available, plays the content in Flash player (for supported formats). If not, results in an error and displays the player container.

Flash is not installed and the browser does not support HTML 5 videos

Results in an error and displays the player container.

Both Flash and HTML playback are supported and Flash is the default.

From the given video source, media player tries to run the Flash video, if available. Else, tries to load the HTML 5 video unless you specify html as the value for type attribute in cfmediaplayer.
