Video.js - HTML5 Video Player

Build Status Coverage Status Slack Status

NPM

Video.js is a web video player built from the ground up for an HTML5 world. It supports HTML5 and Flash video, as well as YouTube and Vimeo (through plugins). It supports video playback on desktops and mobile devices. This project was started mid 2010, and the player is now used on over 50,000 100,000 200,000 websites.

Quick start

Thanks to the awesome folks over at Fastly, there's a free, CDN hosted version of Video.js that anyone can use. Also, check out the Getting Started page on our website which has the latest urls as well. Simply add these includes to your document's <head>:

<link href="//vjs.zencdn.net/5.8/video-js.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="//vjs.zencdn.net/5.8/video.min.js"></script>

Then, whenever you want to use Video.js you can simply use the <video> element as your normally would, but with an additional data-setup attribute containing any Video.js options. These options can include any Video.js option plus potential plugin options, just make sure they're valid JSON!

<video id="really-cool-video" class="video-js vjs-default-skin" controls
 preload="auto" width="640" height="264" poster="really-cool-video-poster.jpg"
 data-setup='{}'>
  <source src="really-cool-video.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="really-cool-video.webm" type="video/webm">
  <p class="vjs-no-js">
    To view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser
    that <a href="http://videojs.com/html5-video-support/" target="_blank">supports HTML5 video</a>
  </p>
</video>

If you don't want to use auto-setup, you can leave off the data-setup attribute and initialize a video element manually.

var player = videojs('really-cool-video', { /* Options */ }, function() {
  console.log('Good to go!');

  this.play(); // if you don't trust autoplay for some reason

  // How about an event listener?
  this.on('ended', function() {
    console.log('awww...over so soon?');
  });
});

If you're ready to dive in, the documentation is the first place to go for more information.
