Video.js version 4.4.0 released - Now supporting RequireJS and Browserify

Version 4.4.0 is here with over 20 updates and fixes. The most notable addition may be support for AMD and CommonJS module loaders, meaning you can now include Video.js using RequireJS or Browserify. Video.js can be installed through npm already, and we’ll soon add support for bower and component(1) as well.
