Best HTML 5 Tools To Embed Videos

Many of the webmasters feel the need to embed videos in their website. Until now everyone was using Flash as a tool to embed videos in their website, but it poses many other concerns. Having flash videos in the website not only increases the load time but also it makes some portions of your website blind to search engines, so potentially it poses a threat to SERPS. An alternate to this is to embed videos using HTML 5.
So without going into debate of Flash Vs HTML 5, we provide you with some useful HTML Video tools to embed videos.
So here is NetFandu's compilation of “9 Best HTML 5 Tools To Embed Videos

This approach is very flexible and straight forward. No installation required and nothing is written to the file system (except a simple properties file).

Kaltura HTML 5 Video Player

Kaltura works in all major browsers, including IE, by using a unique ‘fallback’ mechanism – not only for the format of the video that is played, but also for the actual video player version that is used. A base component of the Kaltura library bridges the gap between the few browsers that don’t support HTML5, by falling back to its underlining Flash player. It has been developed with HTML, CSS and jQuery, and with built in support for the jQuery Themeroller, styling is amazingly easy and flexible which will maintain a unified look and feel across all operating systems and browsers.
