I have to build a video / news portal for a client, and they need a streaming service. They do not want to use youtube because it doesnt look professional. What is a good service that provides a good API (ability to retrieve thumbnails, download URLs), HD versions of the videos, and even an HTML5 player (this is not necessary, but it good be nice) An important factor would be pricing, of course, but I dont think that they are going to get a lot of visits, since its kind of a niche market. I´ve been googling for a while but cant find anything that looks very good. Maybe Viddler?

I would personally recommend Vimeo. Excellent quality. I found a link here that explains the options: http://vimeo.com/plus
