There are several, but many only play certain videos, e.g., YouTubes.

Check out the Mod site:

The key limitation here might be "their own videos"...  If that means videos uploaded to your site, the only one I know that can play "local" videos is SAVE, Simple Audio Video Embedder.

If that means you want to host your own streaming service, that's something else entirely...

I want to upload and play my own hockey games direct from my site.

I did play with CSS for making videos responsive at one point*. I can probably even find it if I look.

*IOW, set the CSS so the videos will never exceed screen width.

If you want to stream it yourself, you should reach out to your host.
