    One Of the Most powerful elements of HTML5 is Video. The video element is used to embed the video in the HTML page.

    There is no need of any plugin or other markup, and the best thing is that it supports all the major browsers. You have to just type a single link element and that's it.

     

     

     

    Video element supported only three video formats like MP4, Ogg and WebM.

    Basic Syntax of Video Tag is:

    <video> ... </video>

     

    By this way Video Tag is implement:

     <video controls="controls" src="findnerd.mp4">
            Your browser does not support the HTML5 Video element.
        </video>
    

    A video, using the browser default set of controls, with alternative sources.

     

    Tag-Specific Attributes:

    <video controls="controls">
            <source src="shuttle.mp4" type="video/mp4">
            <source src="shuttle.ogv" type="video/ogg">
            Your browser does not support the HTML5 Video element.
        </video>
