Top 10 Video Player Problems

When it comes to video sites and embedded players, I absolutely hate it when…

  • there’s no volume control in the video player
  • volume levels aren’t sticky between videos / sessions
  • volume is set to a default of high instead of mid or low
  • the video automatically starts playing on page load
  • I can’t double-click to go TRUE full screen
  • you can’t jump instantly to any given time marker
  • you can’t easily download the video source (MP4, AVI, etc.)
  • the video restarts itself instead of picking up where I left off
  • “share this” code is not auto selected and copied to the clipboard
  • player controls are just too damn confusing
