How to invoke an external application on client side using HTML5/Javascript?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am a beginner in HTML5. I need to play a video using my custom mediaplayer which is residing on the client-side. Mediaplayer is written CPP and Qt. Is there any way I can invoke the mediaplayer from the html 5 page? If object or embed tag is to be used, how do I specify the external application on client-side? How to control the function in javascript? (Video tag support is not provided on my target machine)Please help...

It can't be done. Browsers are a closed environment.

If your target machine can interpret HTML 5, then video tag support is supposed to be there.
