HTML5 Media: Audio, Video & WebRTC

HTML5 Media: Audio, Video & WebRTC

5 hours, 10 minutes

Though some of the concepts in this course are still relevant, overall this course does not reflect our current course standards. We now recommend you take the Complete Intro to Web Development, v3 course.

HTML5 gives us power beyond what we've had before through native APIs in the browser delivering rich media, realtime effects and communication. In this course, you'll get hands-on examples of building your own media players on top of HTML5 APIs. You'll dive into camera support with getUserMedia, WebRTC for realtime communication, video effects with canvas, and get introduced to the Web Audio API for low-level audio support.

This course and others like it are available as part of our Frontend Masters video subscription.
