    HTML5 Video Support? Link to this post

    The ability for this module to automatically convert videos into flv, and have a "video gallery" page is amazing, but now that HTML5 video is becoming so popular I was wondering what the status is regarding this module supporting it.

    My needs are:
    - Various pages in my site will have several videos added to them.
    - They will display as a grid of thumbnails (automatically or manually generated) and titles on the page.
    - Clicking on a thumbnail, pops up a lightbox and plays the video.
    - All videos must be in both H264 and OGG format, using HTML5 video tags for supported browsers, and a Flash player to play the H264 video when in an unsupported browser.

    At the moment I believe this module can do all of this appart from the last part regarding HTML5 video formats. Even if I have to encode the videos into H264 and OGG myself, I don't mind. Just being able to use the other features with HTML5 video would be amazing.

    Is this currently possible with this module?
    What are the future module plans re HTML5?

    Many Thanks!

    Im sure with enough work from yourself you can get this to work without any changes to the way DOM works now. However h.264 and ogg will need to be encoded by yourself or something within your system setup.
