Set and forget on your favorite slow channels. <p>You can find hundreds of browser extensions that let you fine-tune the playback speed for all YouTube videos. I’m happy with the default speed of 1× for most videos (and music). However, I want to speed up some channels without having to tweak the speed dial every time. Enter Samuel Li’s Speed Controller extension.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/youtube-per-channel-speed.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:e8e40f3f-9903-40e9-9770-4b168cbf32f9 2021-10-28T11:18:00Z 2021-10-28T11:18:00Z The HTML <video> element needs to go back on the drawing board The HTML <code translate=no>&lt;video&gt;</code> element needs to go back on the drawing board The HTML standard doesn’t provide web authors the tools required to embed small video files in a screen and bandwidth responsive way. This needs to change. <p>We’ve had the HTML <code>&lt;video&gt;</code> element for over a decade. Yet, everyone still defaults to embedding YouTube frames instead of hosting their own videos. The underlying problem is that the <code>&lt;video&gt;</code> element isn’t suitable for embedding short video files on webpages.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/html-responsive-video.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:2c32fbfb-7fda-4be0-8482-7dbda009912b 2018-11-21T14:37:00Z 2022-03-16T13:02:00Z Safari’s default media controls get blocked when CSP is applied Any HTTP Content-Security-Policy blocks the default <audio>/<video> controls in Safari unless you deliberately make it less secure. <p>I recently ran into an unexpected road block trying to deploy a <code>Content-Security-Policy</code> (CSP) on a website that relied on the native media controls provided for the HTML <code>&lt;audio&gt;</code> and <code>&lt;video&gt;</code> elements in Safari. The default browser-provided multimedia controls were good enough for my purposes and they provide a platform-native user experience to all users. To my surprise, I noticed that there were no usable playback control buttons in Safari on pages with a strict content security policy.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/safari-csp-media-controls.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:e8388f68-d8c3-442c-a424-0c477b9d4ef9 2018-08-30T13:41:00Z 2018-08-30T13:41:00Z Extension enhances privacy of all embedded YouTube videos Ensure better privacy for YouTube videos embedded around the web with this new Firefox browser extension. <p>Get better privacy for embedded YouTube videos with the Privacy Enhanced Mode for Embedded YouTube Videos extension for Firefox.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/youtube-nocookie.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:9a4cdfbf-d2f3-44d6-bd2b-784aed6cab71 2017-12-05T21:35:00Z 2017-12-05T21:35:00Z New Web Media Extensions adds Ogg, Theora, and Vorbis to Windows Free Windows extension from Microsoft adds support for three more open-source multimedia codecs and container formats. <p>In October, I wrote about how Microsoft is bringing Ogg, Theora, and Vorbis open media formats to Windows 10. They’ve managed to deliver on that quicker than I’d expect, but they also haven’t integrated it as tightly into Windows 10.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/windows-webmedia-ext.html">Read more …</a></p>
