HTML5 Multimedia: Develop and Design

This book is an easy, approachable guide to building native HTML5 multimedia into a website, from the simplest addition to more advanced features. It's written in a simple, straightforward style that's not too techy, yet advanced enough for the more experienced coder who just needs to get up to speed on these powerful new capabilities. The book's companion website provides all the examples in a working format for easy access and enhanced visualization for the reader.

Best out there on the subject.,
This review is from: HTML5 Multimedia: Develop and Design (Paperback)I've written regularly about HTML5 for the last few years, but there's stuff in Ian's book I didn't know. It's meticulous and logical and builds a good momentum taking the reader along a well-pitched learning curve.
Ian's well-aware that, although he's showing some state-of-the-art stuff, not every user of your sites will be using the latest greatest browsers, so constantly reminds you - and shows you how - to be a responsible developer and serve your customers, not your ego.
If you're doing some work with HTML5 audio or video, you'll be wise to get this book.
