With the onset of HTML5, there is a dramatic paradigm shift in the wake for online media content delivery. For well over 6 years, this industry has been dominated by the proprietary Adobe Flash Player, which has been used to deliver high quality media to audiences far and wide. This reign is coming to a dramatic end as new Open Standard technology takes its place. Yes, HTML5 is here, and we present to you the Open Standard Media (OSM) Player!
Kaltura has developed a full HTML5 Video Library – in use by Wikipedia – that works in ALL major browsers, even IE.
The library supports a seamless fallback with Flash based playback (using Kaltura’s media player – KDP3) or Java Cortado for browsers that don’t yet feature HTML5 video & audio support. Upon detection of the client browser, the Kaltura HTML5 library chooses the right codec to use (specified in the source attributes) and the right player to display. So whether you’re using flash, h264, ogg-theora or plan to use the anticipated VP8 codec – Kaltura’s library will make sure it is played on all browsers with the same html based UI.
VIDEO5 Player is capable of using HTML5 standard in new browser versions and flash technology in older ones, or those browsers that don’t yet support HTML5.
7. Vplayer – Video player with Gallery
Vplayer is a minimalistic HTML5 Video Player with a Social Media Sharing Widget and a Video Gallery Slider. Vplayer works on all modern browsers, and can fall back to Flash for older browsers. The scripts’ only dependency is jQuery.
This gallery uses the latest html5 tehniques. For example – it uses HTML5 LocalStorage to remember the last volume you had before you exit and sets back that volume when you come back. All the player graphics are driven by XML so you can change anything very easy. The gallery works in all major browsers environment – including IE through flash fall-back. Also, by inputting a single video in the video gallery, it becomes a video player; so you purchase one product, and you have two.
10. Tejas – Premium HTML5 Video Player

If you want to delve even deeper, it provides more options and flexibility so that you can create an UI you want without touching the plugin.
