The Digital Library and Archives unit is running a test for inline playback of videos within VTechWorks. The playback is meant to work with iPads and other modern mobile devices with high speed connections, as well as common desktop web browsers.
Here are items where video playback is currently enabled.
In order to support video playback on many systems, videos have been encoded in two versions.
- mp4 with h.264/aac encoding, moov atom at front of file
- webm with vp8/ogg vorbis encoding
If the tests are successful, we plan to refine our workflow and make other content available with this feature, including computer science seminars, guest lectures by Jon Udell, and the visible scholarship series.
Please note any problems with video playback in the blog comments.
