Today is an exciting day at the CDS website! We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring you some exciting improvements to your user experience. As of this moment, you can start enjoying the benefits of these enhancements:

Brand new Web Lectures player: thanks to the fantastic work of our colleagues from the Webcast and Recording service, we’ve said goodbye to the previous Web Lectures player (based on THEOplayer and JW Player) and welcomed a new video player, powered by Paella. This sleek, modern player is designed to make your video-watching experience smoother and more enjoyable than ever before.

Seamless Access: You’ll notice a significant change in how you access the restricted Web Lectures. No more redirections or weird pop-ups asking for credentials—restricted videos now display seamlessly, thanks to the integration with the CERN Single Sign-On (SSO).

Enhanced Download Options: We’ve always offered download options, and now it’s even easier to distinguish between lecture slides and presenter recordings. Also, subtitles are now available for download as well.

Smoothly Embedded Videos: If you embed videos from the CDS platform, you’ll experience a seamless transition to the new video player.
