I'm trying to make the video player in my wordpress sites to look more elegant.  I hate the look of the youtube player.  But I can't seem to find anything that let's you easily tweak the way it looks.  I tried the Projekktor WP plugin, and it was ALMOST perfect, but I can't seem to figure out how to customize the css of the player, and as a result, when I put the video inline with text, there's zero margin between the player and the text, so it looks cramped and ugly.  I tried for an hour, I couldn't do it.

But is there another way to do this, something easier?  I wouldn't mind paying for it either, as long as it's not a subscription.  I want to have nicer looking player, I want to be able to adjust the css of the player (I need to be able to align in right, left, center, and inline, and I need to be able to control padding/margins).  Is there anything like that?

Can't you just wrap the player in a DIV and do all the CSS styling you want?

JWPlayer will probably do all you need: http://www.longtailv...ayers/jw-flv-player/

I tried, but it kept getting overruled by something, and I couldn't see how to fix it.

Boy, none of these options are all that great.  And we are soon going to start hosting our own videos.  What is a good player that can play hosted videos and has good UI styling abilities?
