Supercharge media elements on your website

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012 by Servage

Are you using videos online? Check out Popcorn to supercharge your media development! The developer describes:

Popcorn.js utilizes the native HTMLMediaElement properties, methods and events, normalizes them into an easy to learn API, and provides a plugin system for community contributed interactions.

Popcorn has dozens of plugins for common services and APIs, ranging from Twitter, to Maps, to media events, and more. But if it doesn’t do what you need right now, you can write your own plugins quickly and easily.

Tested + Community Supported

With over 1400 unit tests, popcorn.js is put through the paces at every release. A result of many iterations, popcorn.js achieved its 1.0 milestone thanks to the efforts of a dedicated community of world class developers and media makers. And with Mozilla behind it, you can feel confident that this library will be supported well into the future. We’re always open to suggestions of how to make the project better suit your needs.

An expanding ecosystem

Popcorn is the core behind a growing number of sister projects and libraries. For example

  1. Seriously.js, a webGL effects library for video
  2. sequencer.js, a method for chaining multiple media objects to a single sequence
  3. Instapoppin, a user friendly approach to designing Popcorn user experience.
  4. butter.js, an API supporting our Popcorn Maker app and any other apps that use popcorn
  5. Popcorn Kernel, a simple web server for client-server popcorn experiences
