Collection of 26 jQuery Plugins for Handling Website Media




Over the course of 2012 and well into 2013 we have seen lots of open source projects come to fruition. Developers are more than happy to publish their codes online if not to support and help other developers with the same problems. Most notably the jQuery JavaScript library has grown to amass a huge following of frontend devs with a lot of talent.

Thus I am dedicating this showcase on 26 of my favorite plugins related to digital website media. Such items may include photos, image galleries, video players, or even embedded media content. All of these plugins are definitely worth a peek to see how you may implement something similar on your next web project. Digital website media is only growing in popularity, so I am sure we can expect even more plugins to be released in the coming months.
