There are far more video and audio player designs than what we know as the standard from youtube and vimeo. We’ve collected 57 examples of interesting multimedia player designs

All multimedia players share three fundamental elements: combined play/pause button, volume control, and progress bar. The more advanced also have social functions such as embed, like, rate, and other sharing tools.

The most common callout for playback is a big (often transparent) play icon on top of the video.
