In this tutorial we begin to build our video player. We discuss the new video element in HTML5 and look at a few of the attributes that are available for that element. We setup our standard HTML5 template page. We have a discussion on the most popular video sizes for the web. We demonstrate the width, height and source attributes of the video element. We discuss the videos formats that are currently supported by the major rendering engines used in our web browsers. We demonstrate the autoplay attribute and the controls attribute. We compare the default controls that are available in the major browsers and the reasons for designing your own player.
