3 Best Video Players for Adult Tube Sites

- 14 mins read

Not so long ago, Flash was the only video solution to play videos on the web. Today, the choices are many and adult webmasters are often in a dilemma when it comes to choosing the best video player for their respective adult tube sites. While every video player company is doing its best to embellish its own image, we have converged a few success parameters to define and help you decide the best video player for your adult tube sites. Without any further ado, let’s take a look at the success factors:

video players for Adult Tube sites

  • Universal Browser and OS Support

Video players should run on every possible browser and operating system. Video players should integrate themselves with as many available formats as possible.

  • Free and Open Source

Video players should not be proprietary property. Open source video players are always desirable. Just in case a bug or a defect crawls into the player, third party web developers can create dedicated libraries to address the fallacies.

  • Differentiation

Flash player is good. However, it is far from great. New generation video players should differentiate themselves from the age-old flash player. Extensive support to customization is required.

  • Features

The list of features to look for in a video player for your adult tube sites is endlessly large. However, we have created a curated list and here is the same:

  • Video Formats and Media Types

It is important to be able to play every possible type of video format. To start with, video players for adult tube sites should support video file formats such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, WMV, Flash, and AVI. Such video formats are a genuine mixture of old and new standards.

  • Video and Audio Quality Management

This essentially hinges on subjective opinions of adult webmasters. Some may be okay with 720p while some other webmasters may not settle with anything other than 1080p. Another important aspect to be factored in is undoubtedly the support of player acceleration by the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Speed of the processor is yet another factor which cannot be discounted. Other important factors determining the video and audio quality are the type of display, the type of content being displayed and streamed, etc.

  • Video Conversion Capabilities

Not many video players have this feature. I advise adult webmasters to opt for that adult video player which has this feature. Converting normal porn videos to MP3 videos is important. Without conversion of videos into MP3 format, uploading the digital adult content to adult tube sites is impossible.

  • Video Player Settings and Preferences

This has always been the bone of contention and confusion. Video players have evolved over a period of time and settings are extensively diverse. Absence of a standard template as far as video player settings are concerned raises a pertinent question: Does the video player have provisions to enable automatic window sizing, activation and positioning of subtitles, proper contrast and saturation adjustments, cache sizes, ability to modify the controller settings etc. Are there any de-facto standards to infuse sanity in the chaotic ecosystem of video players? Well, there aren’t any easy answers.

  • Add-ons / Plug-ins: Extendibility

It is highly likely that a particular video player maybe perceived as the blue-eyed choice for adult tube sites. More often than not, adult webmasters require certain codecs and plug-ins. Not every codec available in the market is compatible with the video players. It is important to check for compatibility of video players with various codecs and plug-ins.

  • User Interface

For all intents and purposes, the user interface should look professional. That said, it shouldn’t be sophisticated. It just doesn’t augur well for audiences if the user interface is complex and not user friendly. Ease of use factor is again left to the discretion of the adult webmasters. It also hinges on the perception of the users. For instance, adult webmasters may like separate windows scattered all across a normal sized screen. Contrary to this, audiences may like different functions neatly arranged in a condensed and unified interface.

  • Developer Friendly

Developers who have a yen for installing good APIs shouldn’t get disappointed. It is in this spirit, video players for adult tube sites should be friendly to the community of developers.

Be informed that diverse ad types such as VPAID, VAST, VMAP, Google IMA and Freewheel are also supported.
  • Analytics tools can be used and insights on content performance can be obtained.
  • No second thoughts, the Dashboard is user intuitive and friendly.
  • Presence of capabilities to track the performance of video content strategy is yet another plus point. In other words, customers can easily find out which videos are in the good books of audiences and which videos aren’t.

This JW Player has got its own set of mobile SDKs (Software Development Kits) as well. For your information, mobile SDKs enable publishers to integrate the video player directly into their native mobile apps. Integration on various platforms such as iOS, android, web and OTT devices is thus made possible.
