Browser Support
  • Videos in the presentation are encoded in MP4/H.264. It should play fine on Firefox (on Linux, you may need to install GStreamer or FFmpeg). It appears to work fine on Safari as well.
  • On Firefox 51 (released on January 24, 2017), there seems to be a problem with video autoplay.
  • On Chrome and Opera, the layout is all over the place, so better stick to Firefox if possible.
