HTML5 can play the Video with simple Video tag. Any way some of the popular mobile devices and tablet devices not supporting Flash Video is sudden sucess of HTML5 video. Any way Flash supporters are saying that Flash player is installed on 95% of the Computers its hard to beat for upcoming years.

The main advantage of HTML5 video is that user need not to wait for the video to buffer.

Sublime HTML5 video player










SublimeVideo is a Zero Maintenance HTML5 video player as a service solution. It provides you with the comfort of automatic browsers support updates, automatic bug fixes and automatic new features.




Video for Everybody is simply a chunk of HTML code that embeds a video into a website using the HTML5 element, falling back to Flash automatically without the use of JavaScript or browser-sniffing. It therefore works in RSS readers (no JavaScript), on the iPhone / iPad (don’t support Flash)




VideoJS is an HTML5 Video Player with 3 core parts: An embed code (Video for Everybody), a Javascript library (video.js), and a pure HTML/CSS skin (video-js.css).

Kaltura’s HTML5 video solution – in use by Wikipedia – works in ALL major browsers by using a unique ‘fallback’ mechanism.

Open Standard Media (OSM) Player:


With the onset of HTML5, there is a dramatic paradigm shift in the wake for online media content delivery. For well over 6 years, this industry has been dominated by the proprietary Adobe Flash Player, which has been used to deliver high quality media to audiences far and wide.

For us, a very exciting part of HTML5 is the tag. Until now, third-party plugins had to be installed before you could watch streaming video. The tag means that, right out of the box, modern browsers will be able to play video on Dailymotion – no extra downloads, plugins, or messing around required. What’s more, certain browsers can use your graphics card – instead of just your CPU – to render the video; this “hardware accelerated graphics” makes playback smoother than ever.

    I think that by far the best of the bunch is SublimeVideo’s HTML5 video player. I even wrote a blog post about it at ahrengot.com/likes/sublimevideo-html5-video-player/ that talks about it’s cool flash fallback for IE. The fallback replaces the HTML5 video player with a pixel-perfectly duplicated interface basedon ActionScript 3 / Flash instead.

    SublimeVideo really feels like a solid foundation for video. Both because of all the features, including, as you mentioned above, automatic updates to take advantage of the power in contemporary browsers. But also because it is much more aesthetically pleasing than the others. A lot of pixel pushing and attention to detail has gone into this one :)

    I was very excited when this whole HTML5 exploded (as a developer), but after some time I changed my mind, here are my some of my thoughts.nnHTML5 video was supposed to be a remedy for poor Flash performance (mostly on netbooks, macs). Now, almost all modern browsers support HTML5 tags (which is nice, can’t tell..), but embedding video content is today even more complicated then it was before. The first thing that causes biggest headache are video codecs. IE9, Chrome, Safari (+all Android/iOS) support H.264 … which is a proprietary codec from LA MPEG. On the other side we have Firefox and Opera which support only OGV and WEBM. That’s not all – Google Announced that it’ll drop H.264 support in short time. What does it mean? Well.. now everybody must encode their videos to at least 2 different formats.nnThe performance… and a huge disappointment. With Safari CPU usage jumps up to 80% (Q6600,4GB Ram, GeForce 280gt, win7), Chrome around 50%, IE7 more or less the same. How about Flash? 20-30%? Why? Because it’s using GPU for rendering Videos, and not the CPU. With StageVideo (introduced in Flash Player 10.3) this number is even LOWER (but not all video player implement that technology yet) nnNow take a list of all these cool HTML5 players. All of them uses the same mode-pattern. HTML5 goes first and if it fails -> flash player comes in… when it should be the opposite. If you really want to have HTML5 compatible player – go grab JW http://www.longtailvideo.com with HTML5 fallback system. DarkOnyx http://darkonyx.web-anatomy.com/en is even better (genius HTML5/Flash mode switcher), but it’s more a CMS then a player in fact. nn
