New media on the Internet has gone through a rigorous process of quality control and best practices for web developers. Back just a few years ago Flash video was the most prominent solution. But with HTML5 support in all modern browsers the solution to embedding audio/video media has become a lot less complicated.

In this tutorial I want to explore how we can build a very simple webpage for embedding mobile-responsive HTML5 video. I have included two versions of the page – one with standard HTML5 video and the other using Video.js. The HTML is almost identical which shows how much progress HTML video has made in a few short years. But you can check out a demo of both pages from the links I’ve included below.

Adobe Flash has fallen aside in some areas of mainstream web development. The newer HTML5/CSS3 standards have filled a void of proper semantics for building websites. But this doesn’t mean Flash is a completely dead technology with no value.

In fact, there are still dozens of really interesting Flash websites online today. I have put together this gallery full of unique Flash animated website layouts. These are still very popular for video game releases and other creative artists such as musicians and writers. The benefit of Flash-based layouts is that you can really impress visitors with an outstanding display of graphics coupled with a keen user experience.
