Video: HTML5 Video Explained

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

From the July Club AJAX meeting: What is HTML5 Video and how is it different from what we are used to? What problems does it solve, and what issues does it have? Since it doesn’t require a plugin does that mean it’s all open source? In this presentation, we will address these questions and provide some basic terminology for understanding how video works. We’ll show how to embed HTML5 Video API and explore the API, and discuss browser compatibility. Finally, we’ll go over video encoding possibilities.

The Internet Explorer Five Step Recovery Program

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

My name is Mike and I use Internet Explorer.

The IE9 Preview is looking strong, and Microsoft is bowing to the pressure of standards compliance. The IE9 Acid3 Test, which checks for CSS3 capabilities, is currently a very impressive score of 83; not very far behind Firefox’s 94. The release notes are a dream come true to anyone who’s done web development over the last ten years. Or is it too good to be true? If they didn’t include canvas in the next release it still might be years before we really have a full feature set of browser tools to work with, and canvas being arguably the most versatile, would be the most egregious omission. But the IE Team recently laid our fears to rest and updated their IE9 feature list to include canvas. Should we get excited? Or is this our abusive ex-boyfriend giving us a puppy? Before I’m able to seriously consider Internet Explorer as a viable platform, I may need professional help in order to get over the last decade…

New Club AJAX Video Series

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Last Tuesday’s meeting was a big success. Dion Hinchcliffe was fact filled, enlightening and entertaining as always. After the meeting I personally felt the urge to go back to my company and tell them all the business opportunities that are currently available. We are very proud and very lucky to have had him speak at our group!

If you missed it, do not fear. His presentation is available here (the main one – the other has not been made public). But even better – the video is posted here.

Of course, Club AJAX has posted plenty of videos before, but starting with this one they are now hosted and edited by BetterVideo™. No longer are they stationary camera shots. They are now professional edited and slickly produced! Going by the standards of YUI Theater, the new BetterVideo-produced Club AJAX videos exceed them in quality! Of course the video already had great content thanks to Dion, but now our videos are and will be that much more watchable.

Enjoy!
