Now a days, browsers have matured well enough to have amazing support for videos on the web. Prior to HTML5 video, there was a huge reliance on technologies like Flash to have video playback on the web. But with that, there were limitations like device support and quality limitations. Today, the HTML5 standard makes video embedding super simple with the <video> tag, and its browser API, developers have a lot of control to build out custom features and experiences for anyone visiting a site. However, one thing I was curious about was what can be done about transparent videos and what does that support look like? I managed to get one working on my site and here I share some of the details on what it took to get there.
