How To Make Your 1280 Video Show Up At 720 Res?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am rendering all of my videos at 1280 X 720. But at 1280 the size would be way too big for the website (currently 900 pixels in Width)

So I need to take that "1280" video and display it on my page as 720 X 480. When the user clicks on it, it can expand to it's native 1280 X 720.

 

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks,

Lou

Hi,

 

This is a function of the video player. If you use native HTML5 video players that are supported in all the latest browsers, you can just set the video dimensions you want. The video player has to support full screen mode (all do as far as I know,) and you should be good.

 

... Same with the many Flash video players.

Hi again,

Ok,

 

So if I have to use Flash, do you know of a flash player (free) that has those functions?

Or if I change to Html5, can you reccomend a Html 5 player?

Thanks

Just do a search for Flash Video Player ... there are a few free ones, or nearly free.

 

HTML5 players are built into modern web browser ... just use the HTML5 video player tag:

 

<video width="320" height="240" controls>
 <source src="avideo.mp4" type="video/mp4">
 <source src="avideo.ogg" type="video/ogg">
Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

 

ogg video is for Firefox I believe. All the other major browser support .mp4.
