YourUpload has been through many player selections over the years to appease a changing and evolving internet. We have finally settled on HTML5 as our player of choice and as such have built our platform around Video.JS
From the beginning YourUpload has adapted to varying player technology to fulfill roles with different media requirements. In the past we have used JWPlayer 4, 5, 6, 7, Flvplayer, Flowplayer 4, 5, 6, and we demo'd several that we never released. Well, we have finally managed to support nearly all of our content with Video.JS!
This moves YourUpload into the independent sector when it comes to player choice. We are now a completely opensource solution that offers a great service.
We believe that the road to Video.js and the deployment of this major change will cause a bit of friction in the community, however, this is for the good, it will provide a more stable, consistent YourUpload going into the future.
Finally, we will be able to adapt some long restricted features on to YourUpload as we continue to customize and work to bring you the best video sharing platform out there. (Oh yea, we can store the rest of your files too, who else does that?)
