Video Introduction to HTML 5

Are you interested in HTML 5 and what's coming down the pipeline but haven't had time to read any articles yet? We've put together an educational Introduction to HTML 5 video that goes over many of the major aspects of this new standard, including:
  • Web vector graphics with the Canvas tag and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
  • The Geolocation API
  • HTML 5 Video
  • The HTML 5 Database and Application Cache
  • Web workers
In the video we also crack open the HTML 5 YouTube Video prototype to show you some of the new HTML 5 tags, such as nav, article, etc. It's chock full of demos and sample source code.

  4. I am trying the code on the video and it's not working. I am using FF 3.5 and Chrome. What's up?

  5. @Rodrigo: Which code? :) Some of them only work on Safari 4, others only work on FF 3.5.

  6. @Brad: Is there a way to get a Google Docs or PDF copy of your powerpoint? I'm going to use your HTML 5 video in a training today and it would be nice to have it.

  8. @Oliver: Wow, Yodigo looks great. Very interesting use of technology in order to provide literacy. If you refactor things into using HTML 5 technologies make sure to contact me (http://codinginparadise.org) as it would be a cool case study of using open technologies to help people.

    Best,

  11. "The field of cryptography is based on the fact that prime numbers are hard and computationally intensive to find." Really? Video has interesting content but I wasn't crazy about the style of the presenter.

  12. I've just launched on open-source project on Google Code called html5media that enables HTML5 video tags in all major browsers:

    http://code.google.com/p/html5media/

    It's a single Javascript file to put in the head of your document. Simple!
