With mobile device usage skyrocketing and Flash Player 10.1 failing to provide a "silver bullet" for developers even on the range of devices that do support it, working effectively with HTML5 video is becoming more critical every day. In this session, we will walk through the basics of creating a jQueryUI-based interface for an HTML5 video player complete with ThemeRoller support. With support for HTML5 video on mobile devices incomplete in many cases, we'll also talk about the nuances of HTML5 video element support on mobile devices including how to properly prepare your content for mobile delivery and common ""gotchas"" when deploying to these devices.
jQuery topics covered include, jQueryUI widget creation, ThemeRoller integration, and how to leverage core jQuery functionality to build HTML5-based video players on mobile devices.
Sample code will be provided to all event attendees for a sample jQueryUI HTML5 video player via GitHub.
