On 14th October I gave a talk at Web Directions South on “HTML5 audio and video – using these exciting new elements in practice”.
I wanted to give people an introduction into how to use these elements while at the same time stirring their imagination as to the design possibilities now that these elements are available natively in browsers. I re-used some of the demos that I have put together for the book that I am currently writing, added some of the cool stuff that others have done and finished off with an outlook towards what new features will probably arrive next.
“Slides” are now available, which are really just a Web page with some demos that work in modern browsers.
