As a web developer or web designer, or those of you who just maintain your own website, you know that the web is constantly changing, and the tools and methods that are used to build websites are in constant development. Like sand dunes in the Sahara, they shift constantly, but fortunately, usually in a forward direction.
The shift in web technologies has currently arrived at HTML5, the latest version of the language used to define and build web pages. With it comes an easier method of adding multimedia to your web pages.
The goal of this book is to provide you with an introduction to adding audio and video to your website, and to give you a glimpse of what else you can do with HTML5 multimedia.
In addition, you’ll find explanations and examples of how you can style the HTML5 media elements with CSS, including some of the new features that CSS3 has to offer. You’ll also learn about multimedia and accessibility, and how you can add subtitles to your website video.
