Simple, but I couldn't get the size parameter to do anything to change the size of the playback. Also, most features are only in the Pro $$$ version.

All right! My native video plugin has been playing up - buttons not showing - so I looked for another. After trying several on the 'best video plugin' lists I found - many several, in fact - variously none of them worked, none of them played MP4 videos reliably, none of them allowed you to link to separately uploaded content (to bypass upload size restrictions), or none of them gave clear instructions on how to embed the video. I mean, you'd think that last one would be high on the list, but they're more interested in telling you how to incorporate the PHP into themes! I wanted simple and ready/obvious to use. I didn't have time to play around with fixing problems arising from editing themes. This delivered. Immediately. I will almost certainly upgrade to Pro.

Super Video Player needed an upgrade for the latest wordpress and the support staff made the changes I would need and upgraded me to the latest Super Video Player. These folks are AWESOME!

We have a lot of government related contracts and accessibility is a must. There are very few plugins that are so easy to use right off the bat and the tab through accessible player is wonderful! thanks!

Probably works well for some but I was really looking for a simple block rather than messing around with shortcodes: I've got hundreds of these to get through so this method would take too long. Also, the plugin made a brave effort to match my theme but messed up so the writing was white-on-white; I'm a CSS numpty so can't be bothered to find out how to fix this. Couldn't get the VTT captions to show, either. Shame, because I'd be happy to pay if it worked better.
