Watch NASA TV using HTML 5 video

Saturday February 26 2011

I quite enjoy having NASA TV on in the background whilst coding on a drowsy Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, their default player uses WMV9 which is less-than ideal. There is also a Quicktime H.264 Stream, but it’s only 320*240…

Luckily NASA also provides a feed made for iPad & iPhone users. If you encapsulate that in a a HTML5 <video> tag you get a great experience (at least on Safari/Mac). Check it out – and enjoy. Combine with Soma FM’s Mission Control for maximum spaciness!

Thanks!
Unbelievable that NASA doesn't provide this service themselves.
Now I can enjoy the silence of space on my laptop, without the sound of my fan running at max speed. Flash should be banned from the internet for environmental reasons.
