Ciw lesson 5

Lesson 5

Multimedia – combined forms of media (text, animation, audio, video)
Programming languages (C++ and C) create operating systems and software applications
Scripting Languages (Java, Java Appelets) create “mini” programs that run with web browsers
Java script is the most popular web language, designed to run whenever events occur
Jscript – Microsoft version of Java Script
ActiveX – an open set of technologies for integrating components on the Internet and within Microsoft applications
VBScript – an object-oriented scripting language that Microsoft derived from the Visual Basic programming language
Both ActiveX and Java applets allow information to be downloaded and run on your system
Internet Explorer and Firefox provide control options to enable or disable the execution of Java programs and other active content
One of the major goals of HTML5 is to eliminate the use of browser plug-ins
HTML5 is a standard provided by the W3C
Most current browsers support HTML5
HTML5 can produce dynamic multimedia content with JavaScript and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
Plug-ins are associated with a specific platform (Windows or Mac OS X) and sometimes with a specific browser
Plug-ins provide efficient integration of multimedia formats with the browser and computer
Browsers launch plug-ins to play multimedia files
Audio and video files are compressed before they are transferred across the Internet
Compressed files must be decompressed so that they can be played
Compression can be either lossy or lossless
Plug-ins use standard compression / decompression algorithms called codecs to decompress and play streaming media
