Choosing Flash Video Controller

Looking for recommendations

I currently run a 2004 version of Camtasia player embedded in a flash frame created in a 2002 version of Flash. That loads the videos I upload to the web and allows visitors to play, stop, pause etc.

It's perfect, apart from it doesn't have the option to toggle to full screen.

I refuse to upload videos to youtube (though their controller would be perfect). I understand Flash CS5 can generate a controller, and I even tried to order it for $1000 (UK price - for some reason there's a 1 to 1 exchange rate with US dollars) but their cart is written in Flash and it drove me mad. While I waited for it to load it occurred to me that $1000 USD is a lot for a full screen button.

Cutting straight to the point - can anyone recommend a decent controller for videos that would allow play, stop and full screen? I did invest in a new version of Corel Video Studio and can export the video in just about any format.

Have you looked at FlowPlayer? It's free, and an unbranded license is very inexpensive. It supports all the popular formats and indeed has full screen.

Combine it with prettyPhoto and you can do lightboxed video that could include YT as well.

Thanks guys. I hadn't known any of those even existed. They are impresive.

Half the battle these days seems to be knowing what to search for (or who to ask). Those suggestions have helped me find jwplayer too which might offer another alternative - will play with them to see which I can figure out how to use.
