Format: Paperback
I've written regularly about HTML5 for the last few years, but there's stuff in Ian's book I didn't know. It's meticulous and logical and builds a good momentum taking the reader along a well-pitched learning curve.

Ian's well-aware that, although he's showing some state-of-the-art stuff, not every user of your sites will be using the latest greatest browsers, so constantly reminds you - and shows you how - to be a responsible developer and serve your customers, not your ego.

JavaScript is my weakest point, so I found the scripts particularly well-explained.

If you're doing some work with HTML5 audio or video, you'll be wise to get this book.

HTML5 Multimedia does an amazing job of giving you everything you need to take advantage of the new media APIs of HTML5. It's an easy read with good examples and even includes a section about the history on HTML and how we got to HTML5 for people who are just getting started.

If you have a basic understanding of how HTML and CSS work then this book is for you. You can get started coding in HTML5 from the moment you start reading the book, as is full of useful and practical examples. This book is for everyone that wants to take advantage of the new features offered by coding in HTML5.

Format: Paperback
Chapters 1 and 2 cover the history of HTML5 and explain some of the new semantic elements (i.e., audio, video, header, footer, nav, etc.). Ian explains how several HTML elements have been simplified. For example, the DOCTYPE is now written as <!DOCTYPE html>, the character set in now written simply as <meta charset= "utf-8"> and the <script> tag can be written without the type attributes (type = "text/javascript") if it is used in an enclosed JavaScript. Moreover, multimedia objects are easier to implement because they are now native to the newer browsers. Ian discusses the advantages of having native multimedia as part of the HTML5 specification---since the object is no longer embedded in the page as a plug-in, it has the benefits of faster speed, native controls and keyboard accessibility. Four new multimedia elements are explored (audio, video, source and track) that make multimedia possible.

Chapters 3 and 4 cover the audio and video elements in more details. Various audio and video formats are listed and how to implement multiple formats so it can be compatible with multiple browsers and multiple sources. Several resources are also listed to convert to different audio and video formats. In addition, how to use media types, media queries and media attributes together to target different devices (i.e., desktop, smartphone, etc.) are explained with key examples.

Chapter 5 explains how to use the JavaScript Media API of the HTML5 specification to create custom controls. Detailed code is given on how to create a simple video player with multiple control elements (pause/play, stop, mute, volume control, fast forward/rewind, and progress bar).
