For every web developer, there comes a time when they need something flashy and hard to code. These two GPL’ed libraries make things a little easier by adding tabs, expose, and an online video player.

jQuery TOOLS is a single javascript library, weighing only 5.72 Kb, that gives the coder access to tabs, tooltips, overlays, exposes, and scrollable menus. Though I never used it, the demos show that it is especially performant. The code is dual-licensed under the GPL and the MIT license, thus giving the coder the ultimate freedom to use it. There are also a lot of demo’s, the source of which is very handy to take a look at.

Flowplayer on the other hand is an open source (GPLv3) video player for the web. It uses flash, which means it can be used on every big platform. It supports flv, mp4 and another codec I’m not familiar with. It’s highly customizable and it’s supposedly easy to create plugins for it. One of those plugins is a playlist plugin, which shows the video’s on the playlist instead of playing them one-by-one.
