How to create HTML video with Easy HTML5 Video: free HTML video creator
You might not know this, but there’s actually quite a few steps involved in creating an HTML5 video that you can use. For example different browsers require you to use different formats of a video in order for the HTML5 video to work in them.
That’s the reason why in the Options section of the sidebar on the right you can select different output formats, which increases browser compatibility. Note that if you want your video to work in all the browsers, you need to select practically all the video formats listed under the Options section (WebM, MP4, OGG).
After conversion finishes, you’ll be asked how you want to publish the created HTML5 video, to a local directory, FTP server or to an existing HTML page. Select one and once the HTML5 video player document is created, it will be opened up right away inside your default web browser, see image above.
If you’re building an HTML5 website and you’re looking for a way how to easily embed cross browser supported HTML5 video, then this free HTML video creator is the best way how you can achieve that. With Easy HTML5 Video everything is point and click.
