Now you can add YouTube, HTML5, or Flash video to your desktop, Web, and mobile applications. And best of all, Alpha Five Version 11's video capabilities are supported across all browsers and all OSes, including Windows Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, and any other W3C standards-compliant browser. And we've also made sure that it works in Apple's iOS and Google's Android.
The beauty is that the Alpha Five Version 11 video component intuitively adapts and supports all video codecs and containers supported within all of the major desktop and mobile browsers. Through point-and-click, developers can take advantage of the power of video as part of their database solution.
So if you're building a real estate app, you can now include video tours of houses. An insurance app can include videos of claims sites. Or maybe you're building a database of speakers available for events. Instead of just having a profile of each speaker, you can include videos of their past speeches. The possibilities are endless.
The new video component supports YouTube Flash video with an HTML5 fallback, native HTML5 video with a Flash fallback, and Flash video with a native HTML5 fallback. So this means that you'll be able to easily build a data-driven component that can point to and run any public YouTube video or any private video, which can be hosted on a server anywhere in the world. They'll automatically be able to run as both Flash-enabled videos on browsers that don't support HTML5 and on HTML5-enabled devices, such as the iPhone and iPad.
But there's more to it than just this. Bob Moore put together three videos that show you the nitty-gritty. Video one is an overview of the new video component in desktop, Web, and mobile database applications. The second video shows you all of the different options associated with integrating a YouTube video into your database app. Lastly, video three shows you the options you get when you use HTML5.
