Web Video and Flash

Video on the web. It is the direction the internet is heading. Most web video is streamed to the viewer using a few basic methods. Adobe Flash is the most common way as the Flash viewer is on most of all web browsers but current ipad and iphone devices do not show Flash Video.

With the rapid adoption of HTML5, web video has gotten both simple and complicated at the same time. While all new browser, on tablets, phones and pc's, display video in the HTML5 formats; older browsers do not. And not all new browsers display the same video formats.

The video formats needed for the web are .ogg, .mp4, .webM, and .swf or .flv(flash).
  • FireFox will play .ogg, .webM and Flash but not .mp4.
  • Internet Explorer will play .mp4 and Flash but not .ogg or .webM.
  • Chrome will play .ogg, .mp4, .webm, and Flash.
  • Safari will play .mp4 and Flash but not .ogg or .webM.
  • ipad and iphone will play .mp4 but not .ogg, .webM, or Flash.
  • Andriods (tablets and phones) will play .mp4, .webM, and Flash.
