Online Samples Player Specs

Hi All

It would be interesting to know what you have found to be the most user effective on-line video player to show off your samples. I'm still using the MediaCollege Classic FLV player mainly because I can list the clips that people want to watch and they can just "click 'n play" However the video window is a little small (480x270) and with clips encoded to FLV at 512kbs an 11min or so clip tends to have to buffer a couple of times during viewing.

My questions to you are :
(1) Which Player do you think gives the best performance and looks professional
(2) What size do you think is the optimal for client's to view
(3) What is a good compromise for video quality vs smoothest playback (encoded bitrate)

Many thanks

Chris

Hi All

Sorry!!! this topic was posted in the Wedding section as it's supposed to be about hosting wedding samples online exclusively but it was moved here so I very much doubt that anyone from the wedding forum will even see it????

As this is a very general section of flash/web rather than wedding online players maybe the moderators could just delete it????

Thanks

Chris

I've found several nice players at FlashDen. All are very affordable and include source code.
