Integrating Audio and Video

WITH THE ADVENT OF video cameras within most cell phones, it has become very easy for people to record their own videos. Thanks to sites such as YouTube, posting videos to the Web has become very easy and popular. Today, many developers want to integrate video or audio content into the webpages they create. HTML 5 was supposed to make the process very easy. Unfortunately, because not all browsers support HTML 5, and because more standardization of video file formats is needed, the process of placing videos within a webpage that all browsers can play remains challenging at best.
