Hi, can you explain me how the fallback works? How the player tests if browser can play a video?

There are some manual decisions that we make for general playback best practices, but we also rely on the canPlayType() Method.

Which is the reason why our player was able to render in HTML5 mode as soon as Firefox supported MP4 natively. :)
