That’s what i love about this period: the openweb is moving really fast these days. Little did I know that this capability was already present in the Firefox 3.1 beta browser I am using daily. Paul Rouget created a sample showing how today, you can extract the images from a video into a canvas element, from where you can manipulate them.
I spent the evening having fun adding various filters to his sample. See the new sample there. We’re living interesting times!
Caveat: video tag support in Mozilla works only with ogg theora encoded videos.
