Chapter 7. Inserting & Playing Media

Chapter 7. Inserting & Playing Media

To put Web media in context, here's a little light history: Before Mosaic, the first graphic Web browser, was introduced, any file that wasn't text or HTML had to be downloaded and saved for opening later using a separate application. All media, including images, were “save and play”—you couldn't view anything right on the page, and no one had yet conceived of inline video or 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).
