HTML5 Video Encoding – Codecs

There is no single combination of containers and codecs that works in all HTML5 browsers.

For maximum compatibility you need more than one version:

Container: WebM
Video-Codec: VP8
Audio-Codec: Vorbis

Container: Ogg
Video: Theora
Audio: Vorbis

Container: MP4
Video: H.264 baseline-profile
Audio: AAC (low complexity)

For MP4 Mobile pay attention to possible  max-resolutions on the different devices:
480×320 (base), 640×480 (no older androids, blackberrys) or more e.g. 1280×720 (only ‘new’ devices)…
