WebM?

May 17, 2013 4:57 PM

Tags: #html5 #webm

I want to prepare my video for the web using the HTML5 video tag. I've got a nice MP4 version of the video from PrE 10, but apparently Firefox won't play it, but will play "WebM" videos. I'm not familiar with that format. I've poked around the "Share" menu, but haven't found WebM. Is it there somewhere, or there by a different name, or do I have to do something else?

 

Thanks!

    Don't ask me to quote the source because I can't recall but I saw it written online that Firefox now supports mp4, at least on mobile devices.

    Get yourself Mozilla Foxfire Version 20.0.1 (which is updating as I type). It will open H.264.mp4 file from Premiere Elements 10 (at least when created from Share/ Mobile Phones and Players).

     

    Is your situation more complicated than I am interpreting it?

     

    Please give it a try and let us know if that worked for you and resolved the matter.

     

    Thanks.

    My Mozilla Firefox was just updated to 21.0, and it also supports playback of that H.264.mp4 Premiere Elements 10 file.

     

    Would the webDVD feature of Premiere Elements 10 Share meet your needs at all. That in reality is a flash file with a menu. After export, the build folder includes a html file.

    Unfortunately, it gets very hard to cover ALL bases, when it comes to clients/viewers.

     

    Good luck,

    Have you run across the following WebM information in your research on the topic

    http://www.webmproject.org/about/faq/

     

    It appears that you are looking specifically for

    Video Compression = VP8

    and

    Audio Compression = Vorbis

    and the compression with a .webm file extension (wrapper format).

     

    I have not worked with WebM and have never seen that it has been supported by Premiere Elements for import or export.
