Popcorn.js

Mozilla's HTML5 Video Framework

Overview

Popcorn.js is Mozilla's HTML5 video and media library for the open web. It allows web developers, filmmakers, artists, designers and others to easily create timeline based web productions. Popcorn.js helps simplify media API and implementation differences between browsers and includes a powerful event system and a rich plugin architecture and plugins.

Popcorn.js can be used with almost any media type you can imagine, from HTML5 audio and video, to YouTube and Vimeo, to SoundCloud, etc. Popcorn.js also has plugins to allow content from popular web sites and services to be integrated easily, for example, Wikipedia, Facebook, Google Maps, etc.

Anything you can do on the web can be turned into a Popcorn.js plugin, and become part of a timeline-based web experience. Popcorn.js breaks video out of the box and allows media to fully interact with the rest of the web.

Try a live code example here.

Running Tests

  1. Install node and npm, find more details here
  2. Install express running the command npm install --save express
  3. Run the command node server from the root path of popcorn-js
  4. Open your favourite browser and navigate to http://localhost:8000/test/

Note. Some tests need focus and might be failing, refer to console or test output to check when a test fails.

Popcorn.js offers a powerful plugin architecture. Plugins are a way for developers to wrap web functionality and allow it to be placed on a timeline, responding to a point in a video or other media resource.
