Jumpstart your Angular applications with Indigo.Design, a unified platform for visual design, UX prototyping, code generation, and app development.

HTML5 adds support for video by introducing a dedicated element, the video tag, as well as various methods to manipulate playback. As such, it makes video a first-class citizen of the Web, completely integrated within HTML and its adjacent technologies, such as CSS or SVG, while enabling proper accessibility capabilities.

This initial support is now being extended to accommodate more use cases, such as live streaming or video conferencing. Starting with the basics, W3C's Philippe Le Hégaret will look at ongoing work with HTML5 video, including real time, captioning and protected content.

Take a look at an Indigo.Design sample application to learn more about how apps are created with design to code software.
