New Feature #7: HTML5 Players
With the widely popular success of Apple’s line of portable iOS devices, which includes the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, the world has been turned on its side when it comes to providing all-encompassing solutions and alternatives to streaming audio and video on the Web.
Enter the very beginning of world-wide coding standards for the internet, HTML5.
While the hype for HTML5 reaches new heights every day, it is important to understand that HTML5 is not the perfect solution to all things mobile, and there is still much to be learned and implemented when it comes to standardizing the Web.
That having been said, there are many developers paving the way to the future with new ways of delivering content to users on their mobile devices. AudioAcrobat’s team has been hard at work developing our own solutions, and it is our distinct pleasure to unveil the first look at our brand-new HTML5 Audio and Video Players!
Playback and user controls (volume, etc.) will be familiar to users of technology as advanced as say, a cassette tape player from the 80’s, while still maintaining the ever-compelling allure of foresight. Think ‘retro-futurism’.
