Tutorial :HTML 5 Video Tag


This is my first dip into HTML5, firstly is there a special way to open the html tag? I read a stack overflow question, which seemed to result in the fact that an rtsp could be srced in a video tag.

Streaming via RTSP or RTP in HTML5

So I have attempted to do so! I have the following HTML

  <!DOCTYPE Html>  <html>  <head></head>  <body>  <video src="rtsp://urlexample/sample_h264_1mbit.mp4">No HTML5 support</video>  </body>  </html>  

However, I open this script in chrome and nothing appears, nothing loads, not even No HTML5 support shows up! I have looked into using cvlc to capture and then display a stream, but I was hoping that this new technology could be utilized to display the video. Any advice would be of help! Thank you.


I don't think Chrome supports rtsp at this time: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=25573

Have you tried it in Safari with quicktime installed? I think Safari does support rtsp, but I'm not sure.


One thing to be aware of is that the contents inside of the tag only show up if the browser doesn't support the HTML5 tag. This is important, because it means if your browser has support for it but just doesn't understand the codec or can't load the video for some reason, that text will not be displayed.

If you want to look at some more examples, this doc from Apple has a bunch of working examples that might help you get started.
