Plugins will soon be a thing of the past. The Definitive Guide to HTML5 Video is the first authoritative book on HTML5 video, the new web standard that allows browsers to support audio and video elements natively. This makes it very easy for web developers to publish audio and video, integrating both within the general presentation of web pages. For example, media elements can be styled using CSS (style sheets), integrated into SVG (scalable vector graphics), and manipulated in a Canvas. The book offers techniques for providing accessibility to media elements, enabling consistent handling of alternative representations of media resources.

The Definitive Guide to HTML5 Video dives deep into the markup that is introduced for media element support in browsers. You¡¯ll explore the default user interface offered through browsers for media elements, as well as the JavaScript API provided to control their behavior. You¡¯ll also learn how to account for H.264 and Ogg Theora codecs.

What you¡¯ll learn

--How to create cross-browser markup in HTML to include audio and video into your web pages
--How to replace the default controls of web browsers with your own or "skin" your media player
