javascript video html 5

Cross-platform HTML5 video with the open-source VideoJS player. Falls back to Flash for the geriatric browsers in your life. Plays with a consistent user interface on any browser or platform.

Please note: this Action is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License, version 3, in compliance with the licensing of VideoJS itself. If this is an issue for you or your clients, I recommend my SublimePlayer Action instead, which is commercially licensed.

Important: Start with an XHTML Strict or Transitional page. The Action will not apply to elements on any other HTML Level page. The finished page will be converted to valid HTML5 format, and is compatible with the other HTML5 Actions should you wish to combine them.

To use, draw a graphic item where your movie will appear, and import a poster frame for your movie. This poster frame should be precisely the same size as the movie you wish to play. Apply the Action to the graphic item, and use the Action palette to attach the MP4 (and optionally, OGG/Vorbis and or WebM versions) of your movie. Preview or upload, there is nothing else to set or configure.

The worst thing about getting old is the younger generations use devices that us old ones can't get the hang of. I now find that the internet is no different, my browser cannot be updated because I am using an older Mac (because I like it and can't afford an upgrade). When I place a video in my web pages, using VideoJS (a brilliant action btw) I can preview my video using the preview command, but whenever I publish the site, I get a message telling me my plugin is not supported. The plugins available are not compatible with my old Mac & browser - any solutions?
