HTML5 Video

I haven’t been doing too much new development in WordPress lately. I’ve been reading a book to be more familiar with the internals so I attack my next project from a strong standing. In the mean time I have attempted to play a little with HTML5 video. I’m just trying to understand the styling possibilities with this technology. I’ve gotten a clip converted to the Ogg Theora format for use with Firefox. It plays fine and for now I’m using the built-in controls. So far, the only way I can get text to appear above the video is to make the text absolutely positioned. In my example, both the video and the text are set position absolute. I’m hoping that won’t be necessary but all examples I’ve seen so far use this. If I find another way, I will post about it.

Once I have my example looking something interesting, I’ll post it here.
