Audio and Video in HTML5
HTML5 brings two new Media Tags. HTML5 Audio and HTML5 Video tags are used to add media content on a webpage. Chrome 3+, firefox 3.5+, safari 4+ and IE 9+ supports both Audio and video tags.
Now we don't require a third party plugin, or flash to play audio or video on our web-page. Earlier <embed> tags was used to include a flash file. Also a plugin ( Adobe Flash Player ) is required to run this. Chrome already include flash player, but for IE, and Mozila, we need to install Adobe Flash Player to run that video or audio. Youtube was used by maximum sites to play video using <iframe> tag.
Even Flash is almost removed from web market. Chrome 55 and above block flash content on a website and require permission to run flash. With the introduction of Audio and video tags, sharing multimedia becomes an integral part of web.
