Adobe Release HTML5 Video Player Widget Based On Kalutra

by Naresh Sarwan on October 22, 2010

Adobe have released a Dreamweaver  widget based on the Kalutra HTML5 video library which simplifies the task of switching between Flash and HTML5 video players to support video playback across multiple browsers or devices:

HTML5 has received a tremendous amount of buzz, much of it driven by the potential for plugin-free video. However, the limited browser support for the HTML5 <video> tag has forced web designers to scramble for a solution that would work across platforms as well as browsers.  To help customers overcome these challenges, Adobe has released an easy-to-use, totally CSS-customizable solution that shifts gracefully from the HTML5 <video> tag to the Flash Player when the tag is not supported. The shift takes place regardless of the screen—from phone to monitor to TV.” [Read More]

This lets web developers focus on their main goal, developing the website rather than overcoming quirks of web video playback compatibility.” [Read More]
