Lesson 12. Integrating Multimedia: Sound, Video, and More

Video and sound are a core part of the modern Web. You can watch television online at sites like Hulu, watch movies on demand through Netflix and Amazon.com, and watch videos uploaded by anyone at sites like Vimeo and YouTube. Sites that sell downloadable music provide audio previews of the music they sell. Pandora and Last.fm enable their users to create their own radio stations starting with the name of a single song.

Understanding how to incorporate video, audio, and Flash into your own Web pages is an important part of building modern websites. In this lesson you’ll learn how to:

• Embed videos hosted at Vimeo and YouTube in your pages

• Convert video files to common Web formats
