What's new in HTML5: The Track Element

What's new in HTML5: The Track Element | Machinimania | Scoop.it

One of the more exciting developments in HTML5 video is the inclusion of the track element in the newest versions of the desktop browsers. In addition to bringing captioning and subtitle support to HTML5 video, the invisible track element allows publishers to attach a rich array of textual metadata to their videos. In this blog post, we'll look at the different types of tracks that can be used in conjunction with the tag :

- WebVTT: A New Format for Text Tracks

- Accessibility: Captions, Subtitles and Descriptions

- Chapters: Navigating the Video

- Metadata

 

You will find examples of scripts file you can add to your videos  for different functions. It's very interesting.

Corel Releases First HTML5-Capable Video-Editing Software

Corel Releases First HTML5-Capable Video-Editing Software | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Corel makes one of the more appealing video editors around, VideoStudio Pro, and today the company announced the availability of the latest version of this enthusiast video-editing software, VideoStudio Pro X5.

 

The big news is the program's ability to generate HTML5 video content. Included authoring capabilites let users add clickable points on the Web video, such as cue points or video chapters. The software outputs to either H.264 or WebM formats. This means the video will display correctly in any browser that supports HTML, including the Apple iPad and iPhone's version of the Safari Web browser.

Google's Open Source Video Player

Google's Open Source Video Player | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Perhaps Google isn't all bad these days! A new open source HTML5 video player is yours for the download. As well as being a good showcase app it is also practically useful. It is the architectural core of the new 60 Minutes and RedBull.tv apps available in the Chrome Web Store.

 

As well as being a basic video player, the app allows the user to add their own content, be it a single episode or a playlist. A Category page also allows the user to build up a catalog of things they would like to watch. The user interface is fairly polished and you can try it out at The Video Player Sample.

 

The key features of the app are (according to the Google Code Blog):

- A beautiful video watching experience, including a full screen view

- Ability to subscribe to shows, watch episodes, create play lists

- Support for multiple video formats depending on what the user’s browser supports (including WebM, Ogg, MP4, and even a Flash fallback)

- A Categories page with an overview of the different shows/categories available in the app

- Notifications of new episodes (when the app is installed via the Chrome Web Store)

- Built in support for sharing to Google+, Twitter and Facebook

- To ensure easy customization, all source files, including the Photoshop PSD’s, are included
