3 easy steps:


HTML5 is the fastest growing web development trend and HTML5 video as a part of HTML5 becomes the new natural way to show video online. iPad, iPhone, Android, all new browsers declare the support for HTML5 video. It's great, but what is the usual route to create HTML5 video? First you need to find converters and make three versions of your video - .OGG, MP4, WebM. Then, to provide the compatibility with IE and old browsers you add a fallback Flash version of your video with Flash video player. And finally, you extract an image for poster and write batch lines of code to combine all of it... Quite complicated?

Forget about it with EasyHTML5Video!

All it takes is 3 easy steps to convert any of your video to HTML5:
1. Drag-n-drop video file to Easy HTML5 Video;
2. Set poster image, select codecs, tune settings;
3. Press "Start".
As a result you'll get an html page with all necessary code, images, and videos.

You can also set video size, resize method, video quality select support for desired browsers and change the watermark.

Specify settings

After you have all the settings defined, press the 'Start' button.

Step 3 - Publishing of Video. Put video on website or local drive

Now you are ready to publish your website video online or to a local drive for testing. Select the publishing method: publish to folder, publish to FTP server or paste video into existing html page using 'Insert to page' option.

Put video on website or local drive

  • - publish to folder. To select a folder on your hard drive, just click the Browse folders button and choose a location. Then click Ok. You can also set 'Open web page after publishing' option.
  • - publish to FTP server. The FTP Location Manager window enables you to define a number of connections for use when uploading your web site gallery to an FTP.

You are able to add a new FTP site by clicking 'Edit' to the right of the 'Publish to FTP server' drop down list. 'FTP Location Manager' window will appear. Now type in a meaningful (this is not the actual hostname) name for your site and fill in the FTP details in the appropriate fields. You will have to type in your hostname, e.g. domain. The FTP port is normally located on port 21 thus this has been prefilled for you already. If your web site uses another port, you will have to enter it here.

Type in your username and password for the connection. If you do not fill in this information, EasyHTML5Video is unable to connect to your site and thus not able to upload your videos to website. If this website enables anonymous connections, just type in anonymous as the username and your e-mail address as the password.

Adding video to website via FTP

You might want to change the Directory as well if you need to have your uploaded videos placed in e.g. "www.domain.com/video/". You can specify it in the FTP Folder field of the Publish window.

Notice: Write the name of the folder where your website video gallery will be placed on the server. Notice that you should specify this field; otherwise your website video gallery will be uploaded into the root folder of your server!

Step 4 - Add Video inside your own page

Easy HTML5 video generates a special code. You can paste it in any place on your page where you want to add video.

    * Export your video using Easy Html5 Video app in any test folder on a local drive.
    * Open the generated index.html file in any text editor.

   <video controls="controls" autoplay="autoplay" poster="index.files/Ford_Mustang.jpg" width="480" height="352" >
