Jump Start HTML5: Multimedia


Build your own HTML5 media player in a weekend!

eBook includes: pdf, epub, mobi

Back in the bad old days of the web, watching a video or listening to music online required a browser plugin. Thanks to HTML5, video and audio on the web is much easier — we can add audio or video to our documents with a simple <audio> or <video> tag.

Today, HTML5 video is increasingly used by the likes of YouTube and Vimeo to present content without the need for plugins or specialised software. In Jump Start HTML5: Multimedia, learn to build your own working video player based entirely on HTML and JavaScript, with support for subtitles, captions, and fallback options.
