Lectora publishes audio and video content such that it will be played by Flash, if Flash is present, and by HTML 5 if it is not. Some have expressed interest in having the preference reversed, such that Lectora content will use HTML 5 if the browser is capable, otherwise use Flash. By placing this Library object at your title level, your title will use HTML 5 to play media wherever possible.
A few caveats go with that:
- The dimensions and look of the player are not consistent between browsers, especially with the Audio Controller on IE. Make sure you give yourself plenty of room, or use views other than the controller.
- The HTML5 Players will not be used within “run mode” in Lectora itself, only when used within a browser, as they are specific to the browsers.
