What is Easy Video Player ?
Easy Video Player is a powerful responsive video player that can play local videos, streaming videos from a server, Youtube videos or Vimeo videos. It only requires the mp4 format (the best and most used format on the web) and it will work on mobile devices and desktop machines no matter which browser is used including older browsers like IE7/IE8, this is made possible by incorporating four video engines into the Easy Video Player, basically it has built-in a HTML5 Youtube video engine, normal video engine, flash Youtube video engine and flash normal video engine. Packed with a huge amount of features like responsive layout, multiple instances manager, flexible skin, share, embed, subtitles etc, it makes it the best and most flexible video player available on sale.
