    Hi,
    If you know of any player that can accomplish the following in iOS and android, please advise:

    • html5 compatible
    • playlist (must play from a playlist)
    • customize (ability to customize playlist and player)
    • youtube (must be able to play youtube vids)
    • start, duration parameters (ability to pass start time and duration)
    • play vids from cloud like Amazon s3
    • **bonus** play vids from Vimeo

    AFAIK, you still have to take a player and add more JS around it to code for all the scenarios you want to cover.

    JW Player is a very excellent HTML 5 video player that should cover most (all?) of your needs. I've used this on many websites and I can honestly say that it is one of the best players on the market. They have a free version as well, you just need a license for commercial use.

    I would suggest MediaElement.js as well, but I don't think it does playlists, though it would be quite trivial to build that functionality (if someone else hasn't already).

    Someone has also kindly put together a comparison list of HTML 5 video players for your perusal
    var details = {
    . . web: "afterlight.com.au",
    . . photos: "jvdl.id.au",
    . . psa: "usethelatestversion.com"
    }

    Hey the comparison list was incredibly good. I appreciate the efforts made on it for sure.
