Two new HTML5 Video Players to consider

Hope you already aware that the web browsers already supports HTML 5. Here are the couple of useful scripts which allows you to embed video into web pages without any plugins and embedding can be done by using <video> element. These are the two methods I came across which embeds video – Video for Everybody and SublimeVideo.

It’s an HTML5  video player that will allow you to easily embed videos in any page, blog or site using the latest modern web standards. Browsers makers are still working on fully supporting the HTML5 video specification, so at the moment SublimeVideo is still in experimental state and only works on a limited number of browsers. But the long term goal is to make it work on all modern browsers.

Demo of SublimeVideo HTML5 Video Player can be found here.

Key Features:
Custom styled controls
Full-window mode
Full-screen mode
No browser plugin
No Flash dependencies
Jump anywhere in the video and it’ll start buffering from that point
iPhone & iPad support
Supported Browsers: Safari (v4.0.4+), Google Chrome (v4.0+), Firefox (v3.6+)

Video for Everybody!

Video for Everybody is simply a chunk of HTML  code that embeds a video into a website using the HTML5 <video> element, falling back to QuickTime and 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) and on many, many browsers and platforms.

Demo of Videos for Everybody can be found here and also you can check the Table of Compatibility in the same page.

HTML5 is so Cool right?

  1. Really nice work.
    It was always a hectic task for me to embed the video to a web page as being web developer.
    Sublime video will be a source to overcome this difficult and time consuming task.
    When is the full version coming to market for the use of people.
