Basic HTML5 video implementation
View html5video-basic.html
<video width="1920" height="1080" src="" poster="" autoplay loop preload muted></video>
The above element behaves like this:
- Sets the width and height of the video element to 1920x1080 (can be overridden by CSS or even JS).
- Sets the source of the video to the URL of the video file.
- Sets a poster image to show before the video plays.
- Makes the video play automatically as soon as possible.
