ROX Web Development Notes



Title: HTML5
Type: tech

A lot of the videos hosted here on the site are old Quicktime .mov files. As such they don't play well in modern browsers or take advantage of the capabilities of HTML5. Our videos hosted on remote servers like YouTube or Vimeo are another story, and that's where we've been deploying all our goods recently anyhow. But that leaves a ton of old videos lying around on our own server that no one can play. We could convert them to MPEG-4 movies, but is it worth the trouble? Here's a test case, the "World's Shortest Music Video" featuring Brown Betty. No, your browser isn't malfunctioning — this video is only one second long.
