All modern browsers support HTML5 playback using video tag. If you don't want to upload three different file formats of your movie you need to provide fallback to flash for Firefox and also older versions of Internet Explorer. To do this you need to go a little firther than drag and drop!
Some examples of these type of players..
All these players can be set to autoload and autoplay. Note that iOS devices - quite rightly - ignore autoplay since this is not a very good idea for website movies.
Thank you for your help on all this...
I like the flow player and the auto hide feature
I am going to check out all those links you sent me but I am leaning towards the flow player
I may run into issues when uploading to my FTP folder and pointing the site to the file, that seems to be where I get messed up and not really good with the html snippets in IWEB
I will take a look at the links and if I have any more issues il let you know
Thanks for all your help, once I get the video/slide done I can upload all my other pages that are waiting
there is no need to muck around with uploading...
yeah I like this idea
do you mind walking me through that process? I am a bit tech challenged at this time
I have the HTML5 app and converted some video but then after that I am lost as far as what file to select where to find it in what folder etc etc and how to convert it on my iweb
I am not familiar on the Java script etc.
But I like your idea the best so far, mind walking me through that? :-)
The problem with that method is the movie won't play in Firefox since it needs an OGG file.
To cover all modern browsers the movie file needs to be uploaded as MP4, WebM and OGG. Of course, IE prior to V 9 doesn't support HTML5, and there's still too many people using it to ignore them.
Using HTML5 with an MP4, and fallbackto flash, saves uploading the file in the above three formats and covers out of date browsers.
thaks for the look out..
So in your expertise.... and knowing what I want to achieve and using IWEB with Go Daddy as a sever/host
What would you suggest I do?
would you be open to waking me through it or hire you out to walk me thourgh it, once I see how the code works in my files and on IWEB layout then I can make sense of all this, im just a creative artist mind you and do'nt want to pay a tech every week to update the blog and photos or media after every project. but figuring this out is getting over my head... :-)
Hey I listened to your songs, groovy man!! I play on a lil ol epiphone LP my father quit his band afte decades of paly, went cold turkey and sold off all his bass guitars.,,, he had an Richenbacker from the 60's mint! hofner, and the last yr leo Fender signed the p bass he had a sunbust all vintage..... SOLD!! ahh I couldnt believe it!!
he was getting burnt out with it and starting to age so..
let me know your thoughts
have it detects video object and change its z-index to -1, that effectively sends video object backward and disable all video object user interface; including scrubbing:
code is on the page, copy+paste it in an html snippet.
Life can be so easy.
