Book: HTML5 Media
Flash is dead.
At least, that’s what we’re told: thanks to the introduction of the HTML5 video and
audio elements, Flash is now dead.
Of course, we know this statement isn’t true: Flash will have its place in web pages for
many years to come. However, thanks to the new HTML5 media elements, we’re no
longer totally dependent on Flash in order to embed a playable audio or video file in
our web pages.
You'll also learn how to provide subtitles and captions, using file formats that work in browsers now. This book includes code samples and downloadable examples to help you take full advantage of audio and video in your web pages.
