I'm trying to play .mp4 on my website. There are a few plugins out there but too many to decide from. What does everyone use for their site and the pros and cons? I need something that supports all browsers and mobile devices and all OS that support HTML5 video.

Looking for something self-hosted.

I don't know which one to go with:

  • mediaelements.js
  • sublime video now dead
  • projekttor
  • jplayer
  • video.js

What do you use or recommend for your site?

I would recommend checking out the LEADTOOLS Media Server SDK. This product includes a web page that determines which player would be the best player to use for that device, whether it be a tablet, phone, or PC. The media server is designed to use MP4 files as input and stream them out to any device, and it is self-hosted. No integration with IIS, Apache, etc.

You can check it out live from the website here.
