    Versions of the Brightcove Player Documentation

    In this topic you will learn about the different versions of the Brightcove Player documentation.

    The Brightcove Player documentation contains two versions of information:

    • Using the Brightcove Player with a Video Cloud account
    • Using the Brightcove Player in standalone (Perform) mode (with content from some other source)

    It is the same player in either case, but if you have a Video Cloud account, the player is able to pull the locations of videos and assets directly from Video Cloud, so that you don't have to provide that information manually.

    Where this makes a difference, we have created alternate versions of the content for each scenario, and you should choose the version according to which scenario fits your situation.

    You can switch back and forth between the Video Cloud and standalone Player versions of the document using the buttons that appear at the top right of the page.
