Poor old Unix timestamp branded the next “millennium bug” – which means a lot of hysteria, and a large anti-climax. This is mostly due to fact by 2038, the timestamp format will have outgrown 32-bit systems. 64-bit systems won’t have a problem until the sun implodes (sometime in the next 5 billion to 7 billion years).
If you want to cater for everyone with video, you are going to have to accommodate them with code, especially those beleaguered Apple users. First, convert your video into 3 formats – .swf, .ogv and .mp4. Between these, you will cover about 90% of users. Be friendly, and add download links for people who prefer to download and watch later, or for various reason, are unable to stream.
Here’s the code …
<video width=”320″ height=”240″ controls>
<source src=”http://mullshrimp.com/videos/HTML5/6685_x264_001.mp4″ type=”video/mp4″ /><!– Safari / iOS video –>
<source src=”http://mullshrimp.com/videos/HTML5/6685_libtheora_001.ogv” /><!– Firefox / Opera / Chrome10 –>
<!– fallback to Flash: –>

The unstoppable march of WordPress, ignoring tedious php-detractors and providing developers with a solid platform with huge extensibility. The focus of web development has rightly shifted to the presentation layer, and this is an area of WordPress’s key strengths.
The presentation layer mainly translates data between the application layer and the network format. Data can be communicated in different formats via different sources. Thus, the presentation layer is responsible for integrating all formats into a standard format for efficient and effective communication.
Will people please stop using Quicktime for movies! Out of all the possible formats, why choose the format that is the least cross-browser friendly, has annoying plugins setup for mozilla browsers, and the software is just full of adware, and annoying unwanted addtions to startup. On Linux, it even more hassle! Kill the MOVs! There is no need or use for them. I know the MAC world is a little “precious”, but surely making a video codec for use on websites, that penalises PC users, limits your audience somewhat. But very very Apple.
plaYce is a startup that is redefining quick-engagement games by providing high-end, media rich action, streamed within the browser. Think of plaYce as casual gaming for REAL gamers, enabling them to play quick-engagement social games with their online friends. Games are based in plaYce’s 3D virtual world, which is accurately based on real world locations. Game developers can use plaYce’s API to create their own games within this unique 3D world.
plaYce’s first game, Downtown Defender, is a 3D Tower Defense game that takes place in SF. The game provides amazing graphics that have never before been seen in the quick-engagement Web browser format. We will launch more games shortly in NYC and Hong Kong.
