    Hi,

    Depending on which browsers you need to support, you could go with HTML5 video element.
    If this is a viable option for you and you need any help with the implementation, just let me know.

    Yes, these days a popular option is to use the new <video> element (which requires various video formats, unfortunately) and then a Flash fallback for older browsers. Here's one example of how it can be done:

    Thanks for those replies. That was very helpful. I'm also looking for a video gallery or video carousel for a web page, where web visitors can flip-through video choices and then select one to view. Any help with that will also be appreciated.

    bxSlider can do video quite nicely.
    It's responsive and it's free: http://bxslider.com/examples/video
