BeOS & Derivatives "So... I have finally gotten around to finishing the Haiku tutorial I set out to complete over a year ago. I was hoping to have it done sooner, but I decided to then prolong graduation for another year. However, my thesis project has been a rocking success, and you can finally see the fruits of my labors. This production should be incorporated into the project as official tutorial material." Okay so yeah it's a tad bit cheesy, but heck, it's BeOS, so shut up.

Well, that would be Vimeo being Vimeo.

After Chrome has dropped H.264, they will not even offer support for the majority of web browsers by using that video format. But re-encoding is oh-so costly for a website which can afford to distribute billions of high-quality videos per day at no cost, right ?

Agreed, why not put it up on Youtube were it will be available as webm. It's not as if Haiku will ever get offical flash support.

Apart from that I thought it was a fun/campy introduction to Haiku with no pretense of being objective.

WebP is supported on the OS level, WebM isn't done yet.

Webpositive needs to use the WebP translator though.. /me takes notes.

Yes I know webm isn't supported by Webpositive, but quite certain it is what will be supported natively (if it ever gets video support that is).

Anyway, HTML5 and webm support would make Haiku much closer to a first-rate citizen on the web. Also personally I don't believe we'll ever see lots of native productivity applications on Haiku (sure hope I'm wrong though) so if we can tap in to web versions of such software it will make Haiku alot more viable for day-to-day use.
