We probably need to include two video players. One generic consumer
grade player, which would be a part of our "desktop" workflow, and a pro
"video" workflow player.
If one could be used for both, that would be fine. I still think both
metas should depend on a video player that matches the need for that
So, basically, we need two players, even if both end up being the same
