Maybe time for some of you to update your websites?

I have also read that 2013 is the year when all browsers will be compatible with all the HTML5 features.

It is time to remove all flash from your websites. Either video or just old Flash buttons. Your potential customers on an iPad/iphone will just not see them.

As regard any video you have....don't host on your own sites...it will just slow the site down.

Just upload to you tube and embed the code You tube gives you on your site.

You can change the settings on You tube so no rival videos appear

Keep in mind that many users still use browsers that do not support HTML5 (Internet Explorer till 9), so you have to do extra works to accomplish backward compatibility.
Also, HTML5 support is not the same among the various browsers.

Hi Bob

How do you change the settings on You Tube? I don't know much about it.

I don't believe that is true. I have read many times over the past months similar statements like in these articles:
http://www.danielkeithjones.com/Articles/Web%20Tutorials/Get%20up-to-date%20with%20HTML5/

I do not understand, you don't believe it's true, but you admit to have read articles that tells you the same thing.

It's a well known fact. And the pages you have linked are just about that, as you pointed out. The first one ends with workaround for IE. The second article is entirely about those problems with IE. So, those problems do exists. And you should know what you are doing when you code a site to target a broad range of people. It is simply not a back-end or an Intranet where you could have control of the browsers people are using.
So you'll have to specifically target IE 7, 8, 9. All of them with their different lacking support for standards (it's their tradition since 1995). That's just Windows. Not considering Mac OS and GNU/Linux. And than, you have mobile OSs.

There are many sites devoted to list supported features by each browser. You can test the browsers you have installed using the notorious http://html5test.com.

I suppose I could have written it better. Embarassed
You said that older browsers don’t work with HTML5. I was demonstrating that there are work-around(s), thus demonstrating it is possible to write a website in HTML5.
