A video player is embedded on a website using HTML and CSS codes and a media player API, such as the HTML5 video tag or an external media player such as YouTube or AudiencePlayer.
These codes allow the website developer to place the video on the page and configure the player with features such as play button, volume control and full screen view.
The media player API enables the website to play and stream the video from a remote server to the user's browser.
