The title says it all. I'm looking to embed a movie that is 793 x 146 to be exact.

I don't want to use Flash to keep compatibility with iOS devices.

Does anyone have any suggestions ??

hello...

not that i know of - can you use html5 video? is that an option? then you can make it whatever dimension you want and have a flash fallback for older browsers...

Yes, I think I will use html5 video.

I've been looking at video.js to taylor the look.

Do you have any experience with an html5 player that you'd recommend?

hello...

i've used video for everybody in the past:

i looked at video.js, but licensing made me not want to use it (it's open source, but any improvements or changes you make have to be pushed back into the product and made available - somewhat of a pain, and i recall it needed some tweaking for my needs)...

there are a ton of them out there, and it's really not rocket science to do your own, either (it really just boils down to embed tags)...but give a few a try and see what your personal preference is!
