When I read the news I see a lot of articles that have what appears to be videos playing in them like the following…
How exactly do you create an end result like this?
These types of videos almost look like they were done with Flash, but I’m pretty sure no one uses Flash anymore due to lack of support and security issues. These videos also almost look like animated gifs in that they play with no need to use a video client or press “play” and there is no downloading - at least on my computer - they videos simply play as soon as you load the web page.
I have read articles where they have videos of the subject of the article just standing there smiling and blinking at you, and it is amazing for much more “real” the article feels when you are looking at what seems to be a real person looking back at you!!
My HTML and CSS and web development skills are quite dated, and I would love to learn how to do more hip and modern types of things like this.
Here is hoping I can learn to do such things here on SitePoint!
