Default WordPress video test.

This is a default WordPress self-hosted video test.

We are going to use the Razer Keyboard key-test movies as the test as they are the shortest and the the blog entry it pertains to has it streaming in multiple parts of the before and the after. All FooBox scripts are disabled on this page leaving only WordPress to handle everything here. This page serves as documentation of self-hosted video files and how a player should behave at its base level.

Part 1 Video

 

Video mirrors:

In case you have no-script enabled or for some reason cannot see the title video on this website. I have provided direct links for these videos.

  • WebM – Link – This is the newest video standard, works great on Opera, Firefox, Chrome, and newer android phones, not good for Safari, IE, Apple.
  • MP4 – Link – The most compatible codec but also rather large in file size. Make take a while to download.
  • OGV – Link – the fallback codec for older PC’s and Linux USB stick OS’s. 1st generation web video streaming based on Ogg-Vorbis encoding.

Performance:

When viewing the page load through the network tab in developer mode. WordPress videos are using the splash jpg file and will not load the stream until the user presses the play button.

Media administrative window:

Adding media to the WordPress video player has been made considerably easier by simply selecting files right out of the media tab in WordPress. All fallback formats work as they should. slight modification to a core function to force WebM’s first documented here.  Poster Image can be changed to give a clean look to the site.

Consistency Check.

Firefox

Google Chrome

Internet Explorer 11

TOR Browser with NoScript at %100

Browser consistency is excellent with WordPress’s default video player. There was pure white for the internet explorer bar because IE attempts to load all html5 videos early. As an added bonus the TOR browser known for its security and privacy was even able to load the video without having to disable NoScript. Although very basic in design it works out awesome.
