Our favorite HTML 5 players
If you’re a production company expert who produces online video and hopes to tap into the mobile market, you have to know how to embed videos into HTML 5 players. HTML 5 players are the only format that can be opened on Apple products, whose share of the mobile market is significant – if not the greatest.
Fortunately, there’s a nice selection of HTML 5 players available online which a video production expert can choose from when deciding how to get a video on his website. YouTube is the easiest and most obvious choice, but there are alternatives for producers trying to avoid the social channel.
1. JW Player
The time tested JW Video player has offered HTML5 support for a while, and even totes the ability to determine what browser is accessing the content and then offer up whatever compatible content you’ve got. With JW, you can even embed .MP4 encoded videos which work on Flash players as well, offering you the best of both worlds depending on where you upload your content.
SublimeVideo is an HTML5 video player that operates on a freemium model where you can get it free with their branding or pay to have that removed. Sublime also offers support for all the latest platforms including Android and iPad.
