  • There is no such animal as an HTML5 player.  HTML5 is an RFC that defines what the HTML5 markup should look like.  I assume you want to play some sort of media?  If that is the case HTML5 defines tags you can use to play audio and video.

    If you want to play audio, you add an <audio> tag.  If you want to play video you add a <video> tag.

    This is not unique to Metro style app programming as this is defined in the HTML5 RFC.
