What is gorilla player?

  • There are lots of different video players, platforms and media frameworks.
    The ones optimized for Web lack professional features required by media and entertainment companies and the media platforms that do contain these professional features are not Web-optimized.
  • The Gorilla Player’s core functionality was designed specifically for production and postproduction, and the Plugins were designed to tackle specific media workflow use cases. The Gorilla Player offers total flexibility as it can sit in front of any DAM / MAM backend - you can use everything “out of the box” or you can create a custom front-end experience leveraging our JavaScript API.
