How to Build a Custom HTML5 Video Player with jQuery

Posted · Category: License Free, Video

As professional web designers, we want to create a video player that looks consistent across browsers. Each browser however provides its own different look and feel for the player, from the minimal approach of Firefox and Chrome, to the more shiny controls of Opera and Safari. If we want our controls to look the same across all browsers, and integrate with our own design, we’ll have to create our own controls from scratch. This is not as hard as it seems.

All media elements in HTML5 support the media elements API, which we can access using JavaScript and use to easily wire up functions such as play, pause, etc. to any buttons we create. Because the native video player plays nicely with other open web technologies, we can create our controls using HTML, CSS, SVG or whatever else we like.

Article: Building a custom HTML5 video player with CSS3 and jQuery taught us how to build an easily customizable HTML5  <video> player, including packaging it as a simple jQuery plugin, choosing control types and outputting custom CSS for your own situation.

How to Create a Beautiful Background Image Navigation

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Codrops has shown us how to create a Beautiful Background Image Navigation with jQuery. The main idea is to have three list items that contain the same background image but with a different position.

The background image for each item will be animated to slide into place in different times, creating a really nice effect. The background image sliding direction from the list item in the middle will depend on which item the user was before: coming from the right, it will slide from the left and vice versa.

On top of that we will have sub-menus that appear with their semi-transparent background sliding in. These backgrounds create an awesome effect of actually just being one element that slides into place, changing its color.
