HTML5 Video – Why should I learn this? How does it work today? How might it work in the future? 

HTML5 draft specification has introduced the <video> element to play web video natively within supporting browsers, without the need for browser plugins. Lack of agreement between the major browser developers on video file format, and the need for support for older browsers, has hampered HTML5 Video use. Instead of the easy-to-use tag, it currently requires more effort. 

At our Saturday, May 18, 2013, meeting, website director Stuart O. Smith, Jr., is going to share with us what he has learned from his HTML5 Video work, plus share some additional resources that he has researched.  The following will be covered:

  • When to use HTML5 versus other video options
  • HTML5 Video file types
  • Converting video files
  • HTML5 code
  • Attributes
