HTML5 video: The next big thing for websites?

24 Oct

There hasn’t been a standard for showing a video/movie on a web page.

Most videos are shown through a plug-in (like Flash). However different browsers may have different plug-ins, and we all know the issues with Flash and SEO.

That’s why the HTML5 <video> element looks set to become the next big thing.

It defines a standard for embedding a video on a website – one without a plug-in – and the results can be stunning.

This site for architectural/design firm Powerhouse Company uses the element to impressive effect. Click on the pic to watch it.

I expect we’ll be seeing a lot more of this.
