    Flahsplayer alternative video player?

    Hi all!

    I am wondering if there is a better alternative to abode flashplayer to play videos on a site, I find flashplayer to break at times and pretty much every device does not come with it pre installed let alone compatible with flashplayer. What should I look for in something that can just play videos from the site without causing issues or be a security risk, the file format of the videos played is .flv if that helps. I'd rather have it so that users dont have to download any additional plug-ins or files.

    Thank you for any help you can provide :-)
