Topic: Is HTML5 player formally supported on PC/Mac browsers?
I can see that after disabling Flash-plugin in my Safari/Firefox/Chrome/Opera, the Simpleviewer galleries still run fine, in HTML5 playback mode. Which is very good information of course. Is this normally supported behaviour? I mean, when defining technical requirements for my galleries can I name a HTML5-support and JS-enabled as one of "legal" options, beside Flash-installed and JS-enabled?
Additionally, I replaced the generic embed-code of current SV:
<body> <!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.--> <script … </script> <div id="sv-container"></div> <!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED --> </body>
with a more customized no-JS error-handling:
div#no_js is styled in my CSS file. Do you think this noscript is OK and up to current state of XHTML and stuff?
Of course, if HTML5 playback is normally supported on modern browsers on Mac/PC then I will make the Flash requirement as optional, in my noscript handler.
