The <video> Tag

The <video> element, unlike the <img> tag, requires an opening and a closing tag.

In addition, a text can be written between the opening and closing tag. The text will be displayed if the browser is unable to load the video.

<video src="myVideo.mp4" width="320" height="240" controls>
  Video not supported

The controls attribute tells the browser to include basic video controls (pause, play, skip).
