The JW Player WordPress Plugin enables you to embed Flash and HTML5 audio and video, plus RTMP and YouTube streams, on your site using JW Player 6.
I will give it a 4 once they would release the audio fix on mobiles. In which audio looks more like a video than an audio on mobiles.
Free version comes with a big JW Player watermark, otherwise works ok.
This is a gorgeous, gorgeous plugin; it works great for what it does; the interface melds seamlessly with the WordPress media interface. Even my most inexperienced users could probably manage using it successfully.
And I absolutely cannot use it, because it doesn't support closed captioning, which is non-negotiable for me, by law. (I run a site for a U.S. federal government research lab.)
If you have to have closed captioning (and really, if you're building sites for the general public and you don't want to slap deaf people in the face and tell them they're not welcome, you *should* use closed captioning -- it's a mensch thing, you know?), keep shopping. This one won't do it for you. Much to my endless, boundless regret. *sigh*
I love the JW Plug-in for WordPress (4+ stars)....
Extremely sluggish Page loads after you upgrade to 1.6.1.
I had to revert back to 1.6.0 after the automatic upgrade, and no problems at all.
Make sure you have a back-up of your previous plug-in before attempting.
FYI: so far WP 3.5 works fine with JW Plug-In 1.6.0.
