Streaming

So far, people seem to have been talking about using the <video> element with static files. But it works fine on streams too. I put together a very rough demo page to show it off (requires very recent nightly – last week’s didn’t work, today’s did).

  1. Firefox (Shiretoko) 3.1a2 can play your demo as well.

    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1a2) Gecko/20080829065003 Shiretoko/3.1a2

  2. Perhaps you’ll like a demo page of mine.

    This is using the video-tag, but falls back to a Java applet to play back Ogg Theora video (if Java installed, otherwise it’ll try a plugin that registered for “video/ogg” or the VLC plugin).

    This means video for Firefox 3, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer…

    Someone with better scripting skills can perhaps clean my scripting mess up and e.g. attach HTML5 scripting controls to the various plugin choices.

  3. Oh, you don’t know about the new videoblock extension? ;}
    No, I would never think of sending it in email.
    But there are folks you would join a newsgroup for that purpose.
    I see that venue (multimedia newsgroup) as a kind of mini-camp for Webdev.
