Source / Alt Source 1 / Alt Source 2: In Source, enter the location of the video file. Alternatively, click the folder icon to select a video file from the local file system. Support for a video format varies on different browsers. If the video format in Source is not supported on a browser, the video format specified in Alt Source 1 or Alt Source 2 is used. The browser selects the first recognized format to display the video.
To quickly add videos to the three fields, use multiple selection. When you choose three video formats for the same video from a folder, the first format in the list is used for the Source. The following formats in the list are used to auto-fill Alt Source 1 and Alt Source 2.
See the table below for more information on browser and supported video format. For the latest info, see HTML5 - Browser Support.
