HTML 5 is the latest version of the language used by web browsers. Previously a plug-in, such as Flash or Silverlight, would be needed to play video. With HTML 5 a new <video> tag allows videos to be directly linked and played natively inside a web browser, just like how images are linked with the <img> tag.
In Squeeze 9 and 10 you can make HTML 5 video output. This will not only make you an HTML 5 compatible video, in an MP4 and WebM format, but also will make an HTML 5 document with the required <video> tag. You can then simply upload these files to your web server (make sure they are all in the same folder) and then your video will be viewable to any HTML 5 compatible browser.
HTML 5 video is supported in Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, and Internet Explorer 9 and higher. Internet Explorer 8, and lower, do NOT support HTML 5 video. Fortunately Squeeze 9 HTML5 preset will also make you a Flash player file (.SWF file) which you can also place on your server for browsers which don't support HTML5
Here are steps to make an HTML 5 output with Squeeze 9 and 10:
1 - Import your source file
2 - Select your HTML 5 preset
3 - Apply it to your source file in the Jobs window.
3a - You can edit the preset if needed
4 - Click Squeeze It! to compress your file.
5 - Squeeze will create five output files. An MP4 file, a WebM file, a thumbnail image, an HTML file, and a backup SWF file for Flash.
Upload these files to your web server.
6 - If you open the HTML document in an HTML 5 compliant web browser, you can play your video.
If the files are on a web server, anyone who links to your HTML document can view your video.
7 - You can also open the HTML file in an editor and copy or edit the code.
*Note: The "Your browser does not support the video tag." text will only appear in web browsers that do not support HTML5 video.
