Video for web with a transparent background
on Jan 30, 2013 at 9:31:54 pm

I'm trying to render a video that will maintain it's transparent background. The developers in my office need a small animation that we created for a client to be placed on there website over their background. From my understanding It has to be a html 5 viewable video I normally give them .mp4 and a ogv for them to fall back on if the .mp4 fails. I know neither one of these 2 files support transparency so I'm looking for other ways around this. (Sorry if my wording is bad I know very little about coding and what can and can't be done with it)

I know I could use .mov but the file size gets to big, and apparently flv is no good as well. I need something that will be relatively small, they always ask for video's to not exceed like 8mb.

So my question does this magical workflow/codec exist

I don't think you can do this short of flash.
