    web media

    how does html 5 play audio and video files without a plug-in, does it have a default media player built into the browser? how are various sites able to edit the player like faceboo and youtube, both (I'm assuming) use html5 video elements but both have different interfaces, how is that achieved?

    I'm not gonna try and make my own, its probably way over my head but i could definitely see myself hiring someone to build a custom interface if its out of my scope

    Yes, it's browser related.

    How the browsers render the media is up to them. They just have to support the HTML5 tag.

    You create custom controls with JavaScript. You can hide the default controls, and create an overlay using any other HTML element, then control the video/audio "remotely" using the HTMLMediaElement API: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/...MLMediaElement

    That's what FB & Youtube are doing.
