10 HTML5 Video Players

Yes, we couldn’t resist the HTML5 temptation and decided to highlight this trending topic on our blog too. Tremendous media buzz that was caused by the latest version of hyper text markup language is really unique even for modern informational society. Anyways we think that mostly you know the core of this issue with not-supporting Flash video on some popular devices and sudden success of HTML5 video players.

Technical implementation of this uneasy task is solved really easy – mostly all players work due to the Java Script performance and of course one of the new HTML5 tags – “video” tag. Actually it is really interesting to observe how web standard can compete with web giant that produces third-party software. HTML5 advocates argue that loading time is faster than Flash because you don’t need waiting for the video to buffer. Flash apologists parry that Flash software is now installed on 95% of all computers in the world and it is hard to beat such statistics even in 5 years.

Anyways we are not going to take any of these sides because we believe that this is your personal decision. We only want to show you some options that might be interesting to you. So please welcome our list of HTML5 Video Players.
