Commonly used Video formats while using HTML5 video
The current HTML5 draft specification does not specify which video formats browsers should support in the video tag. But most commonly used video formats are −
- Ogg − Ogg files with Thedora video codec and Vorbis audio codec.
- mpeg4 − MPEG4 files with H.264 video codec and AAC audio codec.
You can use the <source> tag to specify media along with media type and many other attributes.
A video element allows multiple source elements and browser will use the first recognized format:
<!DOCTYPE HTML> <html> <body> <video width = "300" height = "200" controls autoplay> <source src = "/html5/foo.ogg" type = "video/ogg" /> <source src = "/html5/foo.mp4" type = "video/mp4" /> Your browser does not support the video element. </video> </body> </html>
