Video for the Mobile Web

A session at Dutch Mobile Conference 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

2:30pm to 3:15pm (AMT)

Video has been a poor step-child on mobile, where all the phones list video as a checkmark feature, but development is challenged by limited implementations of emerging standards and sparse documentations. However, the ubiquity of webkit-based browsers and maturing technology has led to relatively easy implementations across iOS and Android. Sarah Allen will talk about her experience with Mightyverse, briefly reviewing early implementation in Flash video and Rhomobile applications across 4 browsers, then dive into more detail about the transition last year to HTML5 with video.js. She will provide practical tips about encoding and embed options, along with an overview of browser and framework capabilities.
