Description (last modified by anna) (diff)
to replace flowplayer - with HTML5 video player by default
Modern browsers are now natively supporting the embedding of video using the <video> tag.

VIDEO CODEC SUPPORT IN UPCOMING BROWSERS
* FIREFOX *
* SAFARI *
* CHROME *
* OPERA *
* IPHONE *
* ANDROID *
- Internet Explorer 9 will only support WebM “when the user has installed a VP8 codec,” which implies that Microsoft will not be shipping the codec themselves. SO THE USER INSTALLS A CODEC AS PER USUAL ON THE OPERATING SYSTEM - AS PER DIVX, XVID ETC.
† Safari will play anything that QuickTime? can play, but QuickTime? only comes with H.264/AAC/MP4 support pre-installed. SO THE USER WOULD HAVE TO INSTALL PERIAN, FOR EXAMPLE. SIMILAR USER-STORY TO INSTALLING XVID SUPPORT ON MAC OPERATING SYSTEM.
‡ Google has committed to supporting WebM “in a future release” of Android, but there’s no firm timeline yet.
In both cases, at least two video formats will be needed on the server: ogv and (probably) mpeg4. Probably now we want to also provide a WebM/vp8 file. Transcoding will need to create these.
Also in both cases, a fallback will be required - the easiest for users is the previous default standard for web video - Flash (which we already support with Flowplayer).
