Creating a plugin

View the plugin docs. If you'd like a head-start on the scaffolding for a new video.js plugin, check out the Yeoman video.js plugin generator.

Adding to this page

When you add a plugin to this page, have a look at how others have done so, it should be a single item, with a link to the project's source code or home page, and a short description (one line after formatting has been applied).

If you see a plugin without a description, feel free to edit the page and add it in, any contributions are appreciated.
