    Is there any alternative plugin that simply uses a HTML video tag to make a video work all I want is a video tag, no watermark, none of that.

    That has a watermark that requires $190/yr to remove.

    Firefox does not support mp4. So the video tag at this time is still not a good way to go.

    Any other methods then? I don't want a watermark, I just want simple play and pause functionality at the bare minimum, and the ability to play mp4 files without any kind of watermark.

    Won't work on mobiles as it requires Flash 9.0 or higher.

    No it works on Firefox!

    <video src="{text}" width="640" height="360" controls preload></video>

    and install Adobe Flash for Firefox and it works fine!!

    Edit: Not all Videos works ...

    I didn't attach the special mp4 file. To cover all browsers, the video tag should have two fallbacks. Let's hope browser editors will try to agree on a standard... I think if you take a look at the youtube source, videos are coded in different formats as well (need to be checked).

    What's the best tool for showing mp4 vids for files uploaded to posts these days?

    Best to include your own library probably and use that.
