It seems flash has become the ginger kid on the playground, and both YouTube and Vimeo have rolled out their own HTML 5 player.  I thought I’d give it a try.  It’s really simple.

For those of you who know HTML, you know that an image is embedded using

<img src=”filepath”>

For HTML 5 video, it works the same way.

<video src=”filepath”>

Since I just upgraded the upload speed of our home server, let’s see how HTML 5 looks using some fairly basic settings.

Pretty nifty eh?  If it didn’t work, it’s likely that you don’t have Chrome 3 or Firefox 3.6
