As it is now better to organize videos on the site? Flash vs HTML5?

At work, I faced with difficulty in choosing, you need to arrange for showing video clips on the website. Some propose to do this using wowza in flash player, other — html5 and h.264


Help to choose one :)

Flash vs and HTML5
Take the example of Google. Why 'or' when needed 'and'?

The question actually is whether to go to your site from people with devices not supporting flash. If there is no or negligible interest, then flash.

Excuse me, but what's the problem to make two versions? If you wrap a flash insert inside
Ah Yes, the parser. If you put flash insert inside the video tag, it will be ignored with the support of HTML5 and recognized in its absence. There are ready-made solutions: sublimevideo.net/demo - kenton.Kutch commented on October 14th 19 at 10:27
And so the players need different video feed? And if I want to add to the player switch quality(720,1080 p), I'll have to flash option is somewhat physically different file to create? - claire.Swaniawski16 commented on October 14th 19 at 10:30

h.264 + html5 almost all modern browsers will support... plus mobile users. (iOS) — this is many times better than go to the site and can't see.
not modern? - kenton.Kutch commented on October 14th 19 at 10:29
h.264 — proprietary stuff. And most popular after donkey browser this codec by the way, does not support.
it is better then webm for vp8 - claire.Swaniawski16 commented on October 14th 19 at 10:32
I'm sorry, but I have Firefox and it does not support this codec. - ettie.Funk commented on October 14th 19 at 10:35

Best of all — through a third party service with an API, let them there and keep track of all fashion trends, and players.

I'm afraid is only if both to make... Times are turbulent, so you have extra barricades to build. ;)

As already mentioned, Flash and HTML5. Only Wowza you don't need (unless of course you are not doing live broadcasts). For pseudo-streaming (the ability to rewind to any place, not just uploaded), use the H264 Streaming Module h264.code-shop.com/trac

Here's another article about html5 players to help you:

There is a summary table on the subject of where it will work,
and where not.
