HTML5 Video Support For Time-lapse

We added support for HTML5 video. With HTML5 video it is possible to display videos without third party plugins like Flash. Video playback is natively supported by the browser.

If you use a modern browser like current Firefox, Chrome, Opera or Safari versions (to name a few) you don't have to install the Flash plugin in order to see the time-lapse videos. The time-lapse video will now play on iPhone/iPod touch and iPad devices, too.

Should you use an older version of your browser or the Internet Explorer where HTML5 video support is not available, the time-lapse video playback falls back to the Flash plugin.

Here are some nice time-lapses:
