    Don't hold me to this, but over a year ago i experimented with HTML5 Video for my university project, about web browser incompatibilities.

    If I remember correctly it will try and use the first video format it finds, in your case MP4.
    Try commenting out all the incorrect formats for Firefox leaving only the one you'd expect to work.

    If this works then you will need to do an if statement to detect which browser is being used and display appropriately.


    Hope this helps.

    Tried commenting out just the mp4 and opening in Firefox, didn't work. Also tried commenting out mp4 and webm, didn't work. Then I tried commenting out mp4 and ogv, didn't work either. This really bugs me because I really can't see any obvious error, unless my video file is corrupted. But it shouldn't be since it works on my computer and on IE, right?



    You would assume it would be OK then, how did you convert them to the different formats?


    Also try taking the codec bits off as W3schools doesn't say you need them, HTML 5 Video

  3. In Topic: Has anyone written a literature review for their comp dissertation?

    Oh! One more important thing I forgot to mention, get as many people to check it over as you possibly can. This is because no matter how good you are you will make mistakes, especially if your tired.
  4. In Topic: Has anyone written a literature review for their comp dissertation?

    My project was an investigation into the visible issues between Web Browsers interpreting web languages and had to be 50 pages long. I did a lot of code examples and graphical examples.

    The first bit of advice I would offer is, make sure your project is on something you enjoy or find interesting as you'll be spending a lot of time on it and by the end you'll be fed up of seeing it!

    Getting a lot of literature is always a good start, however be sure to check the literature is relevant to what you are investigating and is written by someone reliable, as you don't want to have to search for more literature during the write up stages of the report. Find literature that not only supports your hypothesis but also disagrees with it, as this shows you are approaching it with an open mind and gathering data and knowledge to make your decision, rather than a simple preference. (Crucial for a 1st on your project).

    Make notes of any failures and success, don't try to hide these failures as it will get you a better mark when you write your critical reflection.

    Try and keep it written in an academic matter, in other words don't use abbreviations, I know this sounds petty but it was worth an easy 10% of my project.

    Two books I found pretty useful were:
    Writing your Dissertation by Derek Swetnam & Ruth Swetnam,
    The Elements of Style Fourth Edition by William Strunk JR. and E.B.White

    The last one was recommend to me by my tutor and provides excellent advice on writing formal reports and books.

    That's all I can think of for now. :bigsmile:

    Good luck with your dissertation! :^:
