Adobe Flash technology has long been the de facto solution for delivering video on the web. From a programming standpoint, it just worked. With ever-growing fragmentation, shifting standards, and lack of Flash support on mobile devices, the industry is currently in flux. HTML5 has emerged as an open source alternative to Flash for video playback, with a growing feature set, support across mobile, and an energized developer community surrounding it. HTML5 is really still in its infancy (well, perhaps adolescence) and its features are still not on par with Flash. But that doesn't mean it's not a good way to play video online. In this course, I'll show you how to achieve the same basic video-related tasks in Flash and in HTML5. Through simple side-by-side examples, you'll be able to compare the technologies and see the strengths and weaknesses of each, and hopefully remove a few bumps from your transition path.
