Course Overview Hey everyone. My name is Jeff Batt, and welcome to my Pluralsight course, Interactive HTML5 Video and Audio. I am the founder and trainer at Learning Dojo, and oftentimes when working with media, such as video and audio, we stick with the basics and just display the media itself, but there is so much more you can do with video and audio that goes well beyond just displaying the media. In this course, we're going to show you how to create interactive and engaging HTML5 video and audio. Some of the major topic that we'll cover include triggering HTML5 video events, including showing modals and additional content when the video is paused or ended, using video properties and methods to change a video source, trigger inner activity when the video reaches a certain point of time, and even create video hotspots. We'll also cover how to create a custom video player with Video.js, and triggering HTML5 audio events when building our custom MP3 player to control audio, using audio properties and methods to create our own audio playbar, and animate additional HTML5 content along with the audio file. We'll also cover how to get started with howler.js and how to chain files together and add audio effects, and then how we can apply this knowledge to other streaming APIs. By the end of this course, you'll learn how to go beyond static HTML5 media and learn how to create your own interactive HTML5 video and even a custom MP3 player. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn to go beyond just showing HTML5 video and learn to make your media engaging with this Interactive HTML5 Video and Audio course, at Pluralsight.
