S3MediaVault supports YouTube videos. The above player is playing an actual YouTube video.
So why bother using S3MediaVault to play your YouTube video, when you can simply embed it using the YouTube embed code?
For two reasons:
- It allows you to control the look and feel of the player. You can customize the colors of the control bar, the initial play button, and the scrubber and text colors. That way you can style the player skin to match your website's colors.
- It allows you to display In-Video Overlay Ads on the video – Pre-roll, Mid-roll & Post-roll – on any YouTube video, whether that is your own video from your own channel, or from any third-party channel (for which embedding has been enabled, of course).
