Best HTML 5 Video Players

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.

2. FlowPlayer

FlowPlayer is an open source option, with a active community around it which has helped the player and its functions mature quite rapidly. Additionally, it offers plugins that support Adobe Flash, Javascript, Streaming plugins and extensions, video delivery and advertising options.

3. SublimeVideo

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.

    Robert McSwain, Sr. Curriculum Developer & Technologist at Hyster-Yale Group:

    “My company hired Video One and Irwin and his team hit it out of the park for us. We were working on a short deadline and needed video production work in Chicago and I was unable to get my crew there on the time frame I was given. Video One tackled the project head one and communicated thoroughly with me throughout the process and got the job done.” More…
