With HTML5 videos usually get encoded in multiple formats so that every browser can play at least one format. You can also fall back to Flash video for browsers that don't support HTML5. There are plenty of Flash video players online if you search for them, HTML5 does not need an external player. For processing videos I know a lot of people use ffmpeg to do that, you can look into that if it's installed on your server.

i could not find the info.what video format can i us for html5?
you should really read the link carefully? The information is in the accepted answer, which is probably the first post after the OP that you should have read. Also, you can find this information out right in the w3schools HTML5 tutorialshttp://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp And of course, you can always Google. Edited by thescientist
