HTML5 Video Tag Usage

Posted in HTML5, 06.08.2012 19:08

example of video-tag with multiple source tags (browser will playthe first recognized format.):

<video width="320" height="240" controls="controls">
    <source src="mov_bbb.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
    <source src="mov_bbb.ogg" type="video/ogg" />
    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.
  </video>
 

Simple Controlling possible via Javascript:


<script type="text/javascript"> 
var myVideo=document.getElementById("video1"); 

function playPause()
{ 
if (myVideo.paused) 
  myVideo.play(); 
else 
  myVideo.pause(); 
} 

function makeBig()
{ 
myVideo.width=560; 
} 

function makeSmall()
{ 
myVideo.width=320; 
} 

function makeNormal()
{ 
myVideo.width=420; 
} 
</script> 

Das Ganze mit Kontroll-Schaltflächen:


<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html> 
<body> 

<div style="text-align:center"> 
  <button onclick="playPause()">Play/Pause</button> 
  <button onclick="makeBig()">Big</button>
  <button onclick="makeSmall()">Small</button>
  <button onclick="makeNormal()">Normal</button>
  <br /> 
  <video id="video1" width="420">
    <source src="mov_bbb.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
    <source src="mov_bbb.ogg" type="video/ogg" />
    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.
  </video>
</div> 

<script type="text/javascript"> 
var myVideo=document.getElementById("video1"); 

function playPause()
{ 
if (myVideo.paused) 
  myVideo.play(); 
else 
  myVideo.pause(); 
} 

function makeBig()
{ 
myVideo.width=560; 
} 

function makeSmall()
{ 
myVideo.width=320; 
} 

function makeNormal()
{ 
myVideo.width=420; 
} 
</script>
