    The HTML 5 <video> tag is supported on Mac OS X+ with Safari web browser. It does not work on Firefox or Chrome.

    JW Player supports HLS streaming on the desktop. As an alternative:

    Hi,
    As Salvadore mentions above, the HTML5 video tag only works for HLS streams if used with the Safari browser.

    Here's an example use of the HTML5 video tag, that will work in Safari on OSX and iOS:
    <!doctype html>
    <html>
       <head>
          <title>Simple Movie Player</title>
       </head>
       <body>
          <video src="http://WowzaIPaddress:1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4/playlist.m3u8"
                 controls
                 height="270" width="480">
          </video>
      </body>
    </html>
