Note: This Action is now deprecated and may not work. To use HTML5 Video, please upgrade to Freeway 6.
This Action uses the html5media library to allow the HTML 5 Video tag to be used in all browsers. Browsers that don’t support the tag will fallback to using Flowplayer (Flash Video). The entire process is automatic, just apply the Action to a QuickTime item, choose your settings and upload.
An mp4 h.264 file encoded movie (chances are it will already be h.264 encoded if it’s an mp4 file already). To convert your movie one of the following applications:
Theora version: To use the video tag in Firefox you need an Ogg Theora encoded version of the video. Click the button in the Action to get a Firefox extension (Firefogg) that will do the conversion for you
Autoplay: When checked, the movie will start without any user interaction
Loop: When checked, the movie will loop
Controls: When checked, a controller will appear under the movie
Auto buffer: When checked, the video will begin buffering when the page is opened, as opposed to after the user clicks play
Note: You will need to contact your web host and ask them to add the .ogv file format to the list of valid MIME types on your server (or do this yourself if you know how). This Action will produce invalid HTML
