SVG Video: Now playing on a standard near you

Category: SVG

Chris Double has posted a SVG video tag demo that plays a port of a Silverlight demo.

As you watch videos playing, you can move, resize, and rotate the canvases. All via:

this is a whole new paradigm – resizing by rotating :) or maybe it’s just sloppy vector math… but impressive all the same. the most impressive thing is that the javascript looks really easy, so you don’t need to read manuals before coding. but where are the videos? these are images from flickr

Quite nice demo, give new dimension to the web. But which browsers gona to support the video tag except firefox? (As i am working on web applications and most of users are using IE)

Charlie, You should let Microsoft know if you want to see the video element in IE. The more people that ask, the more likely it is they will implement it.

Failing that you can use something like mv_embed:
