I use the HTML5 video tag to play my videos. However, all of my videos have been found and played on the desktop player, which does not support HTML5. I have been working on updating the player to support HTML5.
I think I know what that means. It’s an Adobe Flash Player plugin, which is why all my videos are no longer downloadable. I can’t be sure, but it seems like it’s a bad idea to make everyone use Adobe Flash.
As it turns out Flash is still the best browser plugin I know for playing video. I think the reason why its not supported is because Adobe doesn’t want you to have to pay them for things. It may be possible to use HTML5 on HTML5 video, but it seems like Adobe would prefer you use Flash for that.
Adobe says HTML5 is not ready, but it will be available in the future. The reason why its not working for me is that I cant find an HTML5 video player that supports it. I thought HTML5 had support for video, but I guess I was wrong.
It is possible to play video in HTML5. Adobe says that’s not available yet, but that’s not the only reason it’s not working for me. I also tried HTML5, but it didn’t work on my laptop, so it seems Adobe chose to block it.
We can’t blame Adobe for that, but it is a shame for HTML5 to not support video. There is always the argument that HTML5 is a dead end. The web is becoming much more and more web-based, and if HTML5 doesn’t work for you, then its not going to work for anyone else.
Yes, I agree with that. The web is constantly evolving, with more and more features and applications pushing HTML5 out of the stone-age of web development. The web is a much more dynamic place; if HTML5 doesnt even work for you, it just wont work for anyone else. The future of video will be much more web-based. And if you dont like HTML5, you can always use Flash, Silverlight, or just use a web browser anyway.
Flash is a great way to create interactive videos, but HTML5 video is much better in many ways. It’s simply better because it is cross-browser compatible. In addition, HTML5 video is open for the taking, and has been since the birth of the web. Just because HTML5 doesnt work for you doesn’t mean Flash, Silverlight or any other web-based video will.
