It seems the player needs lots of love:

  • Most of the text are not AA compliant.
  • ksprite (buttons and other parts) is png and should be converted to svg (and gets color palette compliant)
  • Uses jquery UI, should move to OOUI
  • The CSS is a ball of mud, lots of redundant stuff (e.g. color of <a> and a:visited are the exact copy. No need to change) I haven't looked carefully but I think there are some unneeded stuff in it too.

We are currently in the process of changing the video player, see T100106

we have a beta feature but is not ready to be enabled on Wikimedia yet.

Nice, but that looks stalled :(

Oh, well kind of stalled but it is progressing slowly.

It's less stalled than the old player is ;)

Screenshots are not clear, there are other visual changes between the two aside of the color amendments.
If so, also looking at the comment by @Ladsgroup, those should probably go into different tasks.
