All about the HTML5 Video tag

Please note, this blog has been archived and now lives at www.discretecosine.com

I've been meaning to write something about the hubbub surrounding the HTML5 video tag, but in the meantime, Ars Technica has a nice writeup.

I got a chance to see an amazing example of the video tag, combined with some simple JS and CSS, at a recent conference. It had everyone in the audience salivating. Unfortunately, licensing and patent issues could prevent widespread implementation. And of course, without support in IE, you'll be stuck creating fallback flash videos for the foreseeable future.

Anyways, I'll have more thoughts on the debate before too long, for now check out the Ars writeup.

And, yeah, I'll get back to blogging.
