Supported operating systems
The video player operates in a wide range of operating systems, but we can only guarantee full functionality on platforms that are still supported by their providers.
Microsoft maintains support for Windows 10 and still provides security updates for this platform. Mainstream browsers like Chrome, Edge, and Firefox can be downloaded on these platforms and used to access Dental Zing, however, each of these browsers has its own system requirements; newer browser versions may not be compatible with earlier Windows versions.
Apple maintains support for macOS 11 (Big Sur) and still provides security updates. The Safari browser installed with macOS is updated along with system updates; the latest version, Safari 16, is compatible with macOS 11 (Big Sur) and newer. If you are looking to view content on the desktop that has been produced in Dolby Vision, we currently recommend Apple devices with Safari.
Users of macOS can also download the Chrome, Edge, or Firefox browsers to access Dental Zing; see our list of supported browsers above. These browsers have their own system requirements. Newer browser versions may not be compatible with earlier versions of macOS.
The Dental Zing website is accessible on mobile and tablet devices, but we can only guarantee full functionality on platforms that are still supported by their providers.
Android mobile and tablet users can access Dental Zing using browsers installed on Android 8.0 (Oreo) and newer devices. We recommend downloading Chrome or Firefox for Android. These browsers have their own system requirements; newer browser versions may not be compatible with earlier versions of Android.
iOS/iPadOS users can access Dental Zing from iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad by using the pre-installed Safari browser running iOS 12, iPad 12, or newer. Third-party browsers installed from the App Store such as Chrome, Edge, or Firefox use the Safari rendering engine and should function identically to Safari. Additionally, Safari users on Apple devices will be able to playback Dolby Vision content (provided it was uploaded in Dolby Vision).
Users of Blackberry, Palm, Windows Phone, and other mobile platforms may be able to view Dental Zing videos on browsers that support HTML5. The Dental Zing player is not tested in these environments, so support for these platforms cannot be guaranteed.
