In my role as Web Developer for mysql.com I have always tried to advocate open web standards, and to adopt good new web technologies as early as possible. And I believe that an open source product like MySQL owes the World Wide Web open web technologies, rather than content which requires proprietary plugins. Which is why it’s a pleasure for me to tell you that demo videos which used to require Flash have been replaced by new demo videos which work with HTML5 video (and using Flash only as fallback for old browsers).
Take a look:
… or even better, take a look at the real thing at http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/demo.html.
Needless to say, not only the fact that these videos are delivered as HTML5 video is interesting, but of course also what the MySQL Enterprise Monitor can do for you, like analyzing your queries, or monitoring your replication and alert you when things go wrong.
And stay tuned, there is more to come in the future!

Working for Mozilla has made me even happier that this you did this. Thanx Markus!
That’s a great step forward.
The volume for the video’s seems to be really low.
