Experimenting with various video containers, codecs and resolutions.

See here for a summary of what currently works under which web browsers and what should work about a year from now.

Codecs & Containers

To achieve full cross platform support it is currently necessary to use three separate encodings:

  • Theora+Vorbis+Ogg
  • H.264+AAC+MP4
  • WebM
  • (fallback to Flash player with H.264 version)


Experimenting with a range of approx. standard resolutions to test performance over a network:

  • 1080p HD - 1920x1080 (16:9)
  • 720p HD - 1280x720 (16:9)
  • DVD - 720x576 (4:3, 16:9 anamorphic), ~25fps
