Adding share button/social media buttons to video.js
If you ever were un-happy with youtube html5 support or had to look on self hosting your own videos and publishing them to get rid of youtube ads at the end – then you must probably ran into video.js.
This is also known as an “HTML5 Video Player”.
All cool and nice and easy to implement and skin – however there is one tiny missing feature. A share button.
You can probably create your own skin and shit – but I found a quick workaround that makes it look like you added a share button.
I am publishing cuz I did not find many search results that solve this – and there could be a poor or lazy soul looking for this.
You can download the workaround here and take a look at the compressed file containing the code and play the video featuring one of my favorite singers.
