Video in the Open Web Platform

A session at HTML5DevConf Spring 2013

Monday 1st April, 2013

1:30pm to 2:20pm (PST)

HTML5 adds support for video by introducing a dedicated element, the video tag, as well as at various methods to manipulate its playback. As such, it makes video a first-class citizen of the Web, completely integrated within HTML and its adjacent technologies, such as CSS or SVG, while enabling proper accessibility capabilities. This initial support is now being extended to accommodate more use cases, such as live streaming or video conferencing. Starting with the basics of HTML5 video, this presentation will look at the ongoing work happening in the video in the Web space including real time, captioning and protected content.
