rel="shortcut icon" considered harmful · Mathias Bynens Most sites use the following HTML to specify a favicon: Looks okay, right? Guess what — it isn’t! Today, I learned that shortcut is not a valid link relation. Indeed, it doesn’t show up in section 4.12.5 of the HTML5 specification on ‘link types’. Tutorial: How to Build an HTML5 Video Player UPDATE: This tutorial has been rolled into an open source html5 video player. This is a tutorial on building an HTML5 video player in Javascript. It’s meant to give you a basic understanding of the different options you have with the new video tag in HTML5, and the javascript needed to create some of the typical video controls you’d find in other players. It’s library agnostic, meaning you don’t need a library like jQuery to create it, however once you understand how everything works it can definitely be simplified/improved on.

video + canvas = magic You’ve already learned about the <video> and <canvas> elements, but did you know that they were designed to be used together? In fact, the two elements are absolutely wondrous when you combine them! I’m going to show off a few super-simple demos using these two elements, which I hope will prompt cool future projects from you fellow web authors. HTML5 Cross Browser Polyfills · Modernizr/Modernizr Wiki The No-Nonsense Guide to HTML5 Fallbacks So here we're collecting all the shims, fallbacks, and polyfills in order to implant HTML5 functionality in browsers that don't natively support them. The general idea is that: We, as developers, should be able to develop with the HTML5 APIs, and scripts can create the methods and objects that should exist. Developing in this future-proof way means as users upgrade, your code doesn't have to change but users will move to the better, native experience cleanly.

HTML5 Video Player Development This post is also available in: Russian Year by year, we become more involved with media technology than ever before. The World Wide Web is also sensitive to this trend as shown by immense success and popularity of online video services, such as YouTube. However, you cannot run such systems without the technology for video content playback at the end user level. A classical approach is to build a video player with Flash. Probably you can hardly find a more popular Web browser plugin than Flash Player today.

Snap.svg - Why Snap Snap.svg is a brand new JavaScript library for working with SVG. Snap provides web developers with a clean, streamlined, intuitive, and powerful API for animating and manipulating both existing SVG content, and SVG content generated with Snap. Currently, the most popular library for working with SVG is Raphaël. One of the primary reasons Raphaël became the de facto standard is that it supports browsers all the way back to IE 6. However, supporting so many browsers means only being able to implement a common subset of SVG features. Snap was written entirely from scratch by the author of Raphaël (Dmitry Baranovskiy), and is designed specifically for modern browsers (IE9 and up, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera).

Responsive embeds : Anders M. Andersen November 28, 2011 This article shows examples of how to embed video and other iframes in a responsive web design and has examples with YouTube, Vimeo and Slideshare. I found a neat little CSS trick on the A List Apart article “Creating Intrinsic Ratios for Video” and I did some experimenting with it. HTML5 Video: Fullscreen At the moment of this post, these features [except for Pseudo] are only possible in Safari 5.1, Chrome, and iOS but is a great stride in the progression of HTML5 video. There are a few new methods you can use to implement native fullscreen for video and even go fullscreen with html elements [ie - a div].

Ninja power: open-source HTML5 toolset aims to enable richer Web apps Modern HTML rendering engines and emerging standards make it possible to create a new class of rich experiences that could previously be achieved only with native development toolkits—but developers need better Web development frameworks and authoring tools in order to take advantage of the possibilities. Three new open-source software projects developed at Motorola Mobility hope to address the problem. We—Tim Statler, Zachary Cohen, and Kris Kowal—have had the pleasure of working on a new content creation tool called Ninja, a JavaScript development framework called Montage, and a testing automation tool called Screening.
