Chapter 7. Inserting & Playing Media

Chapter 7. Inserting & Playing Media

A little light history: Before Mosaic, the first graphic Web browser, any file that wasn't text or HTML had to be downloaded and saved to open later with a separate application. All media, including images, were “save and play”—you couldn't view anything inline, and no one had so much as thought of streaming media.

With Netscape Navigator 1.1, you could automatically launch a helper application to play a downloaded file, and audio and Adobe Acrobat started becoming part of the life of the Web (Figure 7.1).
