We have a bit of debate on my team regarding the ogg/ogv video format. The argument of some guys at the tech team is that they do not recommend to convert the videos to ogg/ogv because it would only be necessary for Firefox 3.0 based browsers, and that’s a bit old for nowadays browser standards. Besides this the video quality is poor compared with mp4 or Webm.
Let’s see if I can formulate the question in a right way. How Hype will “serve” the videos? I mean, will it check for compatibility and serve mp4 or webm, and if the browser is too old, then serve the ogv version? I mean, if we convert all the videos to ogv too… Will a modern Firefox version use the ogv directly or will it serve the mp4 first? Is there a preference to play one format or the other for browsers that can play more than one format? We do not want a modern Firefox browser to display a lesser quality ogv video if it can play a mp4…
Any insigth regarding this? Thanks in advance guys!
