How To: Building an HTML5 Video Player

At the Streaming Media East show, on May 10th and 11th, we've got Steve Heffernan, Creator of VideoJS and Jeroen Wijering, Chief Digital Architect at LongTail Video doing a hands-on presentations on "Building an HTML5 Video Player" as part of our HTML5 track. This live coding session will demonstrate how to develop from scratch your own interface for HTML5 video, including embedding a video using HTML5, building custom controls using the JavaScript API, fallback strategies for older browsers and devices, and fixing known playback bugs on the iPhone and Android. By the end of the session you should feel comfortable adding HTML5 video to your own site.
