I was wondering how to make my own video player for my website. I really don't want to use flash. Any ideas?

HTML5 will provide. You can use the <video> tag and your choice of h.264, Ogg Vorbis and WebM.

You might be able to get away with this, too:

html code

<embed src="movie.file" width="540" height="400"
autostart="false" loop="false" volume="60"></embed>


Or some horrible Java thing, or some horrible custom browser plugin.

I've decided to go with Divx's Web Player.

No, use HTML5. Why the hell wouldn't you? (No arguments about non-supporting browsers allowed)

Or I can use 1 .mkv file.

But then you are using some proprietary nonsense. HTML 5 is the new cool, use it. Additionally I told you no arguments about compatibility were allowed.

This.


Plus, I guarantee most people will just leave if they have to download a new codec just to watch a video.

This is a consideration. It's important to remember that Chrome has recently overtaken Firefox in terms of users; they have basically the same codecs supported. Also you have a picture of text. I'm not saying you made it but I can't read any of the small print. This is a bad thing.

EDIT: Jesus Christ it's a JPG. Who the hell even does that?!

JPEG is a shit format, and the text in your image is too small/too compressed to read.

It's not a shit format, however it is completely unfit for purpose in this case. For text, PNG is all you need. Or, y'know, a link to the source. Because HTML is HyperTEXT, blah blah.

When would jpeg be the best format to use? I would think that in almost every case there's going to be a better choice you could use.

Pictures. The difference at anything above 85% quality is essentially unnoticeable. It can be instructive to take a high-quality lossless image then JPEG it and look at the difference between the two images. There's a slight afterimage, but really not much. It's a hugely clever algorithm too.

See the problem is, you can't use lossless everywhere. Eventually you will find a file that increases when "compressed".

Sprinkles: This one.

Edit for glory: if JPEG is essentially not the best choice, why are (basically) all videos MPEGs?

Why not just use PNGs? It's lossless, and there usually isn't much of a difference in size between png and jpg.
I guess, I shouldn't have said that jpg is a shit format, but I definitely think there's almost always going to be a better choice, and I also think that choice is almost always going to be PNG.


Also... maybe I'm just a bit slow, but I'm not picking up on what you're talking about with mpegs...

There's a massive difference in size. If you want proof, try it using my pictures from the "noise" thread. My point about MPEGs is that they use many of the same ideas and algorithms as JPEGs do. Broadly, certain key frames are encoded with JPEG, then the changes between successive frames are tracked. Honestly though, JPEGs have the bestest compression ratios for "complex" images. The tricky bit is defining complex, of course.

Yes, it took me 5 hours to upload the noise images from last week. When I play Battlefield, my character appears to go back in time.
