Bruce Lawson – Native multimedia with HTML5

Web Directions @media 2011, London, May 26th 1:40pm.

Presentation slides

Session description

A much-​​​​hyped feature of HTML5 is native multimedia. In this session we’ll look at embedding

We’ll look at the pros and the cons of HTML5 multimedia and see how to write simple controls with JavaScript. Most excitingly, we’ll also look at how HTML5 builds in support for subtitles and captions for multimedia accessibility. And you might pick up a Turkish dancing tip on the way.
