PlayBook HTML5 Video Tag - Supported formats?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

Does anyone know what video formats are supported by the PlayBook using the HTML5 video tag? Does it support MP4 like the ipad/iphone? or are they being picky like Firefox and supporting a strange format like .OGG??

 

A quick response would really be appreciated!

 

Cheers,

Rob

Easiest way to find all supported HTML5 elements in the PB browser is by loading up this page: http://html5test.com/

While creating my app i just left it open to see what formats i could use.

 

Good luck!

Hi,

 

thanks for the link. unfortunately we dont have a playbook - we are just looking at compatibility for an existing system and how we would need to adapt it in order to function correctly on a PB

 

Cheers,

Rob

A little presumptious of me to assume you had a PB, sorry. Screen shot attached. Hopefully you can see it.
