Anybody know how to make html 5 video play on android handhelds?
you can create an ogg, webm and mp4 file, and have a fallback to a flash file
or you could use the easiest way possible, which i've already given you the link for.
and to bluntly refuse to learn it! man your just shooting yourself in the foot...
CSS isn't designed for interactivity. Even elements like hover, transitions and animations are meant for design purposes. People tend to confuse feedback with interactivity. They aren't the same.
Amun to that, (no it's not a mis-spelling just the origin )
And as a designer, do I care about interactivity? Maybe all I need is feedback. What would be an example of the difference?
Like, in this case, all i'm wanting is a video to play on an android phone. That's not even feedback maybe.
as a "web designer" if you don't think about interactivity, you're not doing your job properly. A good understanding of JS and how it works is pretty important in this day and age.
again to get html5 video to work on all browsers and devices I'd suggest you look at that link I sent you. works on everything for me with that.
so what is the difference between interactivity and feedback anyway?
perhaps you need to upgrade your cupcake or jellybean to icecream sandwich or whatever crazy names they give them.
old android versions don't support html5 video
also they sometimes need a poster image to work properly
save from that it would be helpful to see the code...
e.g., Mouse hovers a link, link color changes.
Feedback is providing cues, usually visual, that help a user know that something is meant to be interacted with. Feedback is a part of presentation, which is the purpose of CSS.
e.g., User clicks a link, a div expands to show content.
Interactivity is reaction to user input. Client-side scripting provides interactivity.
sounds to me interactivity and feedback actually are the same thing. if there is a difference i still don't understand it.
Think of feedback as the extra little bits to aid in the user's experience. They're vital for a user to better understand how to navigate.
Interactivity would be something that happens when you do something else. These are quirks - or essential non-essentials. Hiding content until clicked doesn't have to be done. The content could already be visible - but it looks cool, huh?
