WebM video files

Posted at — Jun 4, 2019

WebM is a video container format sponsored by Google.

  • It’s based on the open source Matroska container format
  • It supported VP8 video and Vorbis audio streams at launch
  • It was updated in 2013 to support VP9 video and Opus audio

I don’t know much more than that, other than I exported my first one today:

Embed a webm in HTML markup using a standard HTML5 <video> tag, like this:

 <video width="600" height="600" controls autoplay>
  <source src="/mov/left-nav-loading-anim-50fps.webm" type="video/webm">
  Your browser does not support the video tag lol
