Azure Media Services & Player

Azure Media Player
very easy to embed to a web page, a few lines of HTML.
still, embedding YouTube is one HTML tag (example below),
video URL is shorter and provides speed adjustment option.
A chance for Microsoft to make it even easier...

"Azure Media Player is a web video player built to playback media content from Microsoft Azure Media Services on a wide variety of browsers and devices. Azure Media Player utilizes industry standards, such as HTML5, Media Source Extensions (MSE) and Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) to provide an enriched adaptive streaming experience. When these standards are not available on a device or in a browser, Azure Media Player uses Flash and Silverlight as fallback technology."
