About this web

This website was jointly developed by the UPC Communications and Promotion Service (obriu en finestra nova) and UPCnet (obriu en finestra nova) using the open-source content-management system Plone (obriu en finestra nova).

UPCtv and HTML5 player

This version of UPCtv uses the HTML5 video player on all browsers that support the H.264 video codec or the WebM video format. If you use a browser that does not support this technology, you can use the Adobe Flash Player to watch the audiovisual content.

Compatible browsers


  • Full-screen mode is partially implemented. If you click on the full-screen button, the video player will fill your entire browser window.
  • If your browser does not support HTML5, JW Player will automatically be used instead.
  • Firefox and Opera only use the HTML5 player for WebM-encoded videos.

Open-source software

The content and applications of this website are managed using the open-source software Plone Open in a new window, which has already been used on the main UPC website Open in a new window and on GenWeb Open in a new window, and is the tool used to create all of the UPC’s institutional web pages.

To play audiovisual content, we use JW Player™ Open in a new window , a highly flexible non-commercial video player that can handle any format supported by Adobe Flash Player Open in a new window (FLV, H.264, MP4, MP3, AAC, JPG, PNG and GIF), in addition to several real-time streaming formats (RMTP, HTTP, live streaming and others) and XML playlists. JW Player 5 was the first version of this player to be entirely developed using free, open-source softwareOpen in a new window. UPCtv currently uses JW Player 5.4 Open in a new window, the first version of JW Player to support HTML5.
