* Feature request - Upgrade audio/video support to html5

Reported by dleffler | December 17th, 2012 @ 08:43 PM | in 2.2.0alpha3 (closed)

We need better audio/video support for html5 esp. since flash is becoming deprecated on more platforms (apple, androide, etc...)

Flowplayer has moved to html5 only which doesn't support flash (.flv,.f4v) or audio (.mp3) files. Nor is flash readily available on a growing list of platforms. However, http://mediaelementjs.com seems to support multiple types.

Solution would be something that seems to work transparently across platforms and browser (versions). Should also be a single solution for both audio and video and fill in the gaps between browsers since the browser file support list provides little overlap (.mp4, .ogg). Would also require us to move to use html5 video/audio tags/markup.
