Library Introduction

Flash Fallbackforward Instead of offering an HTML5 player to modern browsers and a totally separate Flash player to older browsers, MediaElement.js upgrades them with custom Flash and Silverlight plugins that mimic the HTML5 MediaElement API.

Magic happens, and then IE6-8 supports <video> and <audio>, Firefox and Opera support h.264, and Safari and IE9 support WebM (*coming Spring 2011 if Adobe makes good on Flash 11 promises).
