Why a video player at all and not YouTube or Vimeo?

FV Flowplayer

YouTube or Vimeo are great as a way to drive additional traffic to your site (we recommend adding your videos to YouTube but not linking back to YouTube from your site). But the last thing you should be doing once you have your visitors is sending them away to watch other people's videos.

Brightcove and the other private video services are great. But you'll pay 10x or more the rates for your bandwidth. If you are on Brightcove, you better hope your video doesn't go viral, it might bankrupt you.
