HTML5 Video Player: Projekktor

Projekktor is an open source HTML5 video player that is built with pure JavaScript but uses Flash when there is no native H.264 support..

The player supports playlists and can display the videos in full-screen.

It has a control panel which appears on-hover and can be easily customized/themed by editing a single CSS file.

Projeckktor - HTML5 Video Player

For extending its capabilities, Projekktor comes with a plugin interface.

Having the great features said, we must mention that the player is not perfect yet (in alpha stage).

Considering the inconsistencies between browsers in HTML5 support, browsers may act differently while displaying the player (more details on its website). However, it is under heavy development and new features/fixes are added regularly.

    Thanks for suggesting this project. It is iPad ready and saved me lots of headaches.

    Not as smooth as can be a flash one, but interesting anyway. =)
