    Thanks for the post! Currently working on a new major version, so if you have any thoughts I’d love to hear them. Cheers.

    This looks nice. I might have to give it a try on our organization’s redesign.

    I was wondering though, does anyone know of a solution similar to this that has the capability of displaying captioning or subtitles as part of it’s feature set? I think something like that would be quite useful, especially in my situation. Of course, this may be a good subject for an extension I guess.

    This is one of these moments when I wonder why, oh why, there is no plain HTML-JS based overlay for keyboard accessibility. Again.

    They were so close to it.

    There are already more good solutions:


    I especially like SublimeVideo as well, but unfortunately it’s a paid solution.

    Fantastic information, finally we have a descent way of publishing video instead of using Youtube’s ugly option… and no flash ;)

    Thanks Jeffrey

    I don’t understand why it has taken so long for HTML to properly support embeded video. I can still remember back in the late 90’s when Flash was starting to be used as video player, I thought to myself, Why Flash? Surely this is just temporary.

    Well I guess better late than never.
