Sci-Fi 'ish music videos make for better testing than some dry lecture; really is better than blah, blah, blah. Well, some say p0rn is more fun but this is a G-Rated test. [tip: Want to surf p0rn sign up with a company that filters it and proof those URL submits.]
First up is Lady Gaga. My ears tire of pop music quickly but the video is interesting. This embed (The Red One) is fully customized (via youtube); size, color, privacy, what's related and fullscreen. It is standard Flash HTML code.
The Red One - Looks dated huh?
The Second embed is HTML5. The fun part here is when the browser is not HTML5 ready - plain old Flash player is used. The question is: what will google do? Sorry couldn't resist that. So, what will youtube do a runtime? I don't know, will see.
Should see the minimal light silver player.
Last but not least we need Aliens. How about green and blue ones? Wish granted.
Ok, that one is just for fun. Aliens have killer weed? Yeah they better, they have the killer spaceships.
1. I expected both embeds to finish the same, i.e., just a replay button. The only difference in the setup at youtube was putting a check mark in the iframe box, they should be the same; no next video just a replay button. A side effect of pressing next video is a black screen when video ends.
