has anyone built a quicktime "fallback" into mediaelement js?
Posted on 2015-01-21
i'm doing a bit of research on how best to go about this.
we need to play .mov files with the html5 video player MediaElement JS but have discovered that most of our mov files do not play in the flash fallback - wrong encoding I'm guessing. please don't suggest re-encoding as there are literally millions of files.
i'm thinking that this doesn't need to be an actual fallback as I don't have the knowledge on how to build a fallback - unless you want to instruct me on that.
also the solution needs to be "within" the player. when i first discovered this .mov file thing (most of the files are mp4) I thought the simplest would be an if else statement - if file is .mov then show quicktime - else show mediaelement.
now that logic is fine as long as it's inside the player and can work with a playlist that may be of mixed content - some mp4 and some mov.
i'm open to ideas ...
