But, with the coming of HTML5, the video, canvas and audio, control and access on web came have also become possible.

Features of HTML5

Video: With the coming of HTML5, the uploading and manipulation of video has become much easier. Now, you are no more dependent on the codes, which are generated by third party plugins for embedding the video. Below mentioned is the code of HTML5 to shows a video element with three different codes:

<video width=”320px” height=”240px” autobuffer=”autobuffer” autoplay=”autoplay”>
<source src=’video.mpg’ type=’video/mp4; codecs=”avc1.42E01E, mp4a.40.2″‘>
<source src=’video.mp4’ type=’video/mp4; codecs=”amp4v.20.8, mp4a.40.2″‘>
<source src=’video.ogv’ type=’video/ogg; codecs=”theora, vorbis”‘>

Canvas: HTML5 provide you the space for drawing. Now you can easily upload photos, draw graphics and do animation on the website with the appropriate coding. The canvas has element of height and width helping the developer in drawing and doing changes on the website.

Media Playback Control: You can control the new element of embedded media into your HTML document with the use of JavaScript. So, if you want to restart your playback, refer below mentioned code:
var v = document.getElementsByTagName(“video”)[0];;

The first line in the code, i.e., ‘var v = document.getElementsByTagName(“video”)[0];’, bring back the first video and second code ‘;’ call the element to replay.

Web Storage: Now with the use of localStorage (stores data with no time limit) and session Storage (stores data for one session), you can easily store the document in HTML5. And you can ask for the document to see, whenever required. Earlier this storage process was done by cookies, which were not good source for storing large file or document and also affect the performance and working speed of website. This program is being supported by JavaScript.
You can use below mentioned codes for storing.

Access to localStorage:
<script type=”text/javascript”>
Access to sessionStorage:
<script type=”text/javascript”>

Web Sockets: It provides bi-directional client server interaction and full duplex with one TCP connection. WebSockets runs on browser support and presently only Chrome support it. The purpose of this proposal is:
To increase web server
To simplifythe coding task

Web Worker: Web worker helps in preserving background scripts in web application. It helps the user in handling computationally tasks and fire up long running scripts. This all is done without blocking UI or other scripts. Dedicated worker and shared worker are the two type of web worker.To run web worker you have to save your code in separate file, as it runs on isolated tread. But before that, you have to create a new worker object in your page using following code:var worker = new Worker(‘task.js’);If this code is pasted in new tread (after complete download) then worker will start running on the site. This method is known as postMessage method: worker.postMessage(); // Start the worker

New semantic tags: Semantic tags in HTML5 make markup document more accessible and logical. The content of document is markup by semantic tags. So use semantic tags you will need to have improved version of <!DOCTYPE> element. The <!DOCTYPE>element work on every browser. The popular element used in semantic tags is mentioned below: <article>

<aside>,<figcaption>, <figure>, <footer>, <header>, <hgroup>, <mark>, <nav>
