While it’s HTML5 video that gets all the attention, there’s a lot more to HTML5. At the recent HTML5 Video Summit in Los Angeles, Michael Dale, senior developer at Kaltura, guided the audience through all the mark-up language’s many new and improved offerings. He also touched on a few video-related topics, including how HTML5 makes video decoding possible in the browser.
“It doesn’t work very well; it probably eats the battery very quickly, but the point is that the HTML5 platform overall is becoming very robust and supportive of a lot of features. Here’s the Google Maps thing I was talking about earlier. This is using WebGL. Notice that it’s very smooth, it looks more like a native application, it doesn’t have that choppy title-based thing going on,” said Dale.
