I have just spent a little while playing with the new WebM and HTML5 experimental support in Mozilla Firefox and I mus say. I am quite impressed. The 760p video samples I have seen are truly quite impressive. I would suggest that anyone capable should get their hands on a browser with experimental support and give it a shot themselves.
But for those of you who are not so daring – here are a few screen shot of what a video looks like in 720p with the new experimental features. For those who are a little more daring, see the information at the bottom of this page about where you can find the experimental Firefox builds.
Firefox Experimental Builds
- First you will need to go and get yourself a Firefox nightly build, or a nightly of your favourite browser. If you use Windows then you can get a build here. For Mac you can get a build here and for Linux you can get it from here.
- Install the nightly build. Note that if you are already using Firefox you may wish to read this before you install it!
- Load the the video here and try out the different resolution settings and enjoy!
