HTML Basics: Inserting multimedia content into HTML • Outputting multimedia on webpages


Embedding Images and Multimedia Content in HTML

In HTML, Multimedia Content refers to various types of digital media that convey information or improve the user experience on a web page. In general, images, audio, and video are primarily referred to as multimedia content.

Multimedia content can be used to create dynamic and interactive web pages. However, when using multimedia on a web page, care must be taken that the loading speed is not affected too much. This is especially true for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers.

Images and multimedia are essential components of a website. They illustrate text, improve the design, and make the web page more attractive. By using the right HTML tags, you can seamlessly integrate images, audio and video content into your web page design.

Embedding Audio and Video in HTML

Until a few years ago, text, images, and photos were the most important content elements on a web page. Today, however, audio and video content are becoming more and more important. Before HTML5, plug-ins such as QuickTime or Flash had to be used to integrate multimedia content into an HTML page. With the new HTML <audio> and <video> tags, plug-ins have been eliminated and integrating multimedia content is much easier. Learn more about how to add multimedia to your web page.
