Introducing YouTube HTML5 Supported Videos

YouTube recently launched a simple demo of an HTML5-based video player. HTML5 is a new web standard designed to enhance user experience. It is becoming increasing popular among YouTube users, as it supports video and audio playback without the need to download a browser plug-in. HTML5 is the next major revision of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), the core markup language of the World Wide Web. It aims to reduce the need for proprietary plug-in-based rich Internet application (RIA) technologies such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Sun JavaFX. The current drawbacks to HTML5 are:

1) It is only supported by a limited number of browsers (Chrome, Safari, and ChromeFrame on Internet Explorer)

2) Until the capabilities of the player are expanded (which is currently in the works), it will be a challenge to gain the support of the development community.

To learn more about HTML5, visit YouTube.

How to Create a Custom Background
for Your Twitter Account

1) Your Twitter background should be consistent with your companyís brand. It should communicate who you are and what your followers can expect from your tweets.

2) The dimensions of your background will be determined by the userís monitor. In order to ensure your background will not be cut off, your image should be 1680 x 1200 pixels.

3) The image resolution should be 72 dpi and the file size should not exceed 800 KB. (Note: Twitter aligns the background image to the top left.) Therefore, it is necessary to display your main content to the far left.

4) Your Twitter background should feature your companyís logo and complimentary colors. It is very important not to clutter your background with too much information. You want your followers to have a pleasant user experience and be able to read your tweets.

5) To add a custom background, go to Settings (in the upper right), Design (see tool bar under site settings), Change background image (near bottom of the screen), Browse (upload background image) and Save Changes.
