Hi,
I am trying to put/embed/load a video in HTML 5, and it seems not to be working. :/

I know the extension is wrong, But I cant convert it or it wont play.

Also, I dont really know how to get the right video format (I already tried real player converter, and some random online convertor)

CODE

<h2> Cholestrol <h2>
        <video width="320" height="240" controls="controls">
        <source src="healthy.flv" />
        <embed src="healhty.flv" width="320" height="240">

        </embed>
        </video>

Flash is not a recognizable video format for use in html5 video tag. Use h264 in an mp4 container.

Also embed is not valid html5 markup.

See this post for more.

There are any number of convertors. Handbrake, MiroVideo, Quicktime7, MPEG Streamclip

Mac or WIndows or Linux?

It's been gone since html4 hasn't it? When it was replaced with object.

HTML5 uses video and audio tags for media.

It never was in HTML before but HTML5 included it. If still seems to be there.

Oops!

I guess there is an embed tag, although I can hardly ever understand the Wc3 docs fully. From what I understand that is for applications (plug-ins), which there is a movement away from.

So even though embed is valid markup, it isn't so relevant to "embedding video". I mean you can use it, but i wouldn't.
