    I have a client that wants me to update their site. It's white hat and they have a bunch of videos. I have access to the original AVI files.

    They aren't selling anything in the videos so they could be hosted on Vimeo. And while I like Vimeo, I worry about them shutting our feed down and me having to do everything all over again.

    I could use AWS or YouTube too if you think that's better. If AWS I'd need some sort of player (suggestions?) unless the latest version of WordPress added one.

    I need the videos to play on computers as well as iOS devices that don't support Flash.

    THANK!

    I've been looking at JW Player and something called Videojs. I also looked at Viddler and Sublime Video.

    Any thoughts?

    Definitely use YouTube. If they own all the copyrights to the stuff in the video's, you have nothing to worry about.

    Hmmm. I'm not worried about that. I'm just looking for a good solution.

    I have never had trouble with Vimeo. If your not selling anything then JWPlayer is free and works quite well. Can you not just upload the videos to the websites webhost? How big are these files? Maybe you re-encode them to a smaller size and host them yourself.

    The Vimeo Pro is $200 a year and they don't harrass you like they do on the basic and pro plans.
