html5:video vs. svg:video

Postby Fenring » Sun Dec 02, 2007 4:34 pm

Hi all,

What is the difference between the <video> element of HTML5 and the one in SVG 1.2 spec ?

As far as I can see, they are completely different elements. (?)
With different attributes and so (src vs xlink:href, loop vs repeat, ...).
Isn't it sad, as they are quite the same elements in purpose ?

Will HTML5 spec align onto SVG's ?
Will the implementations consider that's the same element (and permit us to use any kind of attributes) ?

I think the SVG guys have decided to align with HTML for their <video>, but it's unclear if there's interest from browser vendors to support the SVG element.
