Hi, there.

HLS is only natively supported, meaning it would not require Flash Player, on the following browsers:

  1. Safari on OS X and iOS
  2. Chrome on Android
  3. Microsoft Edge on Windows 10

All other browsers would require Flash Player to be installed. Chrome for Desktop comes with a version of Flash Player built-in, so it would not require the user to explicitly install Flash Player on their computer.

You can read more about the browsers and devices we support, along with the media formats supported in those browsers and devices, on the following support articles:
Browser & Device Reference
Media Format Reference

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
