react video component

Recently I’ve been playing around with Facebook’s react framework, and I must say, I really like it a lot. I also run an extreme action sport video community website: I’m always searching for ways up speed up the website, and I know that the flash player I was using (jwplayer) can be a bit heavy at times, and sometimes it is unsupported in certain browsers.

Open Source React Video Component

The source is on Github here It is a fairly simple wrapper for the <video> tag. Feel free to use in your own projects and contribute to the source.


In the near future, I’d like to add support for HLS Streaming.
