HTML5 Media Player Framework

HTML5 Player Framework by Microsoft (open source) 

"The Player Framework for HTML5 is intended for use in browser-based applications. The framework has been tested in the latest versions of both desktop and mobile browsers that support the HTML5 video tag. It should be noted that the W3C does not currently have a standard for adaptive bitrate streaming so most browsers only support simple progressive download playback at this time. Microsoft, along with ninety other technology and media companies, is driving a standard called MPEG DASH that promises to become the industry-wide standard for adaptive streaming in the future. "
