In-Depth Information
<video> . . . </video>
Not in HTML 4.01 . Embeds a video file in the web page. The video resource can be provided
with the src attribute or by one or more source elements inside the video element to provide
several video format options. Other fallback content may be provided in the video element to
display by agents that don't support the video element.
There is still debate regarding the supported video formats for the video element. No file
format is supported by all browsers. As of this writing, browser support for available file
formats is as follows:
IE 9+ (versions prior to 9 do not support the video element): MP4/H.264 (MIME type needs to be
set correctly on the server for video to play), and WebM (by installing components from The We-
bM project at ) .
Chrome 5+: MP4 (H.264 + AAC), Ogg Theora/Vorbis, and WebM (6+)
Firefox 3.5+: Ogg Theora/Vorbis, and WebM (4+)
Safari 4+ and Mobile Safari 3+: MP4 (H.264 + AAC)
Android (2.1+): MP4 (H.264 + AAC), and WebM (2.3.3+)
Flow content, phrasing content, embedded content, interactive content (if it has a con-
trols attribute), palpable content
