My Findings on HTML5 – Video / Audio Tags

Objective of the Research Findings

  • Find useful HTML5 elements which are now safe to use in modern browser
  • Must have some fallback strategy as backup.

Solutions found so far for VIDEO/AUDIO TAG,

  • Use video tags in conjunction with with flowplayer.org as fallback. Using MP4 as the standard file format for all videos.
  • Firefox 3.6 still have problems playing mp4 video using VIDEO TAG (they only can support Ogg format for now).
  • Refer to samples on how to implement this feature more in http://videojs.com/
  • For audio tags should be using MP3 as standard file format for all audio. Again Firefox 3.6 having problem on that. (they only can support Ogg format for now).
