Hi, I would like to know how to create your own video player and audio player online?

I know how to embed players on my site but want to make my own. I would like a free way to make a custom looking player.

I don't want to use flash but use something that works with all OS browsers.

Currently I have firefox on my ubuntu linux system and I have trouble playing flash videos. I want something that can play hd videos and regular videos.

any ideas?

Look this (http://www.mediafront.org/getting-started) one, It uses HTM5 video is themeable and will works in almost all browsers.

Its open source, so I guess you can take a look at the code...

Is there a way to support all formats? for video and audio files?

If not then is there a way to convert the formats to the usable format?

You'd have to have a server that converts the formats into one standard format that can be played on any browser.

This is a challenge with HTML5 as there isn't an official standard and if you follow the news there's a lot of fuss over which codec to use.
