Works perfect while single video is added to the page. If I add more than two video players to the same page, then none of them work and just keeps rotating.

This is a very nice module and the first responsive video player i have found so far! The installation is simple and the module is easy to use. the design is perfectly simple. however, this fullscreen mode ist not working, so i can only give 2 stars.

Thank you for your review.

Please note that the module isn't responsive, only the plugin based on Video.js v3.2.0 (and further versions) is it.

Best regards

Although I would like to see Joomla (in the future, after 2.5) allow HTML5 directly into articles by default - as a core feature, this is an outstanding extension for those that really need it now. Our web design and mobile app company almost exclusively use HTML5 now for vid/audio and the extension is great and user-friendly. Easy to understand. Thank you!

I've been using this player on sites for over a year now. Have yet to find anything that comes close.

Fantastic plugin to insert your own videos into an article!! I tried a number of other extensions to insert and play videos in articles but this one works flawlessly. No back links, player has a simple and clean interface, easy to install and it just works very well. Kudos to the developer.

Haven't tried installing it yet, but in the Safari web browser on my iPad 2, running iOS5, the demo page of videos all work perfectly! Can't wait to try it on my sites.

I've tried many video player extensions, and this one really stands out. It's very easy to install and use, it doesn't have any kind of watermark, it seems to work perfectly in all browsers, and it's free. What more can you ask for?

I checked out can't really use it stand alone since it is not that easy to customize (e.g. hide share or language)...your module is perfect stand alone. It is simple and worked right away. In my case I needed a stand alone player for a lawyer office with nothing but the video. Your player is perfect!!! Thank you very much...

You are so lucky to be visiting this page!

This is a beautiful, easy-to-use module which deserves all praise. It works smoothly in all other browsers and mobile devices, which is why I am a huge fan.

The design is simple and the installation is fool-proof. This made my day.

I've always wondered how to get HTML5 video easily into my Joomla sites -- this is absolutely perfect! And I'm a huge fan of VideoJS already, so that's just the cherry ontop of the icing on the cake!! :)

If you've tried coding around a variety of browsers & version & video plugins & formats to get everything to work, you know just how impossible the task is. The plug-in worked great for me. I had to do a little testing, of course, and changed my configuration several times to get the look & feel right across my major platforms. I have no problems with WebM, Ogg, MP4, and FLV across Android, Opera, Safari 5, Firefox, IE 8, and Chrome. IE 9 is problematic (as it is for everybody) but this plug-in handles it as well as possible, correctly if IE 9 has the Google WebM plug-in or Flash, and providing a fail-through with links.

Online forum has lots of Q&A, so I didn't find a question that I couldn't get an answer to already. Very nice!

This is a great package, and a wonderful addition to my toolbox.

This plugin stepped out before all the other joomla video plugins to allow html5 video play with a flash fallback. In other words your video will play on your iphone, ipad, android phone, pc, and mac!
I've been using another highly rated Joomla plugin for quite some time, but I'm so glad to find bo:VideoJS. Thank you so much!!!

I'd be so happy if this Module had support to add Youtube Playlists.
Love the skins and the player look overall. Think that's it the smoothest and best module available. But we need playlist support.

Was having a problem getting my videos to load, then realized it was a compression issue. Found a great tool for getting the right settings called XMedia Recode. One question left, is it possible to get rid of the download links and "HTML5 Video Player by VideoJS"? or at least make it less conspicuous?

Great work! It just works perfectly without messing around. I certainly recommed this extension if you need a video player.
BTW, I streamed my video from Amazon S3 using this extension. It works very smoothly.

I recommend this module 100%.

I was searching for an HTML5 video player and this one completely fit the bill! I installed and had the same issue others have had and had to be sure to include all versions of my video before it would appear. With the popularity of the iPad, this extension helps so much. Also, I had a problem with the main menu appearing behind the module video and sent an email to Alfred asking for help. He quickly replied with the answer and all is well.

I installed this plugin and it worked perfectly in articles. But what I couldn't do is make it work in modules. After entering the same code in a module, it just showed the code, no video. Even tried a plugin that imports an article into a module position and still didn't work.

Nice job anyway!

Seems like a great module/plugin. As I tend to use the module - the player won't find my uploaded video (uploaded to my webserver via ftp).

This is probably just me beeing dumb and tired, but this would be a great help. Kinda tired of the flying birds as the only video working :-)
