General Best Practices for Working with Web Media

When I pitched my talk Audio, Video & Elm: Best Practices for Multimedia, I promised best practices. In the talk, I covered the most important ways to think about these practices, but I just ran out of time to cover many important ones.

The practices enumerated below could be their own talk on their own, but they’re not Elm specific. I’ve therefore made this page to share them.

Honestly, most of these principles can be summed up as "Just do what YouTube or Vimeo or SoundCloud do." Those companies do a great job with this stuff.

In addition to the practice itself, I’ve included some info on how hard it is to do in Elm and some hints as to how to do so. I hope to start adding some Ellie examples once I get time.
