I am developing a system, among the functions of which may be playing local video files of the user. User video files can be in any format. There is an idea to use browser as a GUI for this system (In this case, the core of the system will work as a web server). The system itself is very similar to a social network, so the idea with a browser is very logical. Unfortunately, the standard VIDEO tag does not support any formats, even if the corresponding video codecs are installed on the user’s computer.
I need to understand: is there a way to get any browser to play any video? Since in any case there will be a client application, it is possible to install additional extensions for browsers, additional software etc. The main thing that it was a stable and working solution.
