Angelina Fabbro: CSS In Your Pocket – Mobile CSS Tips From The Trenches
Skip the first 4-5 (mostly introductory) minutes to get to the juicy stuff. Some good points about mobile web performance and compatibility are raised but the most interesting parts are about the cutting edge updates in Firefox DevTools including the CSS Coverage Report (which works for multiple pages showing you what entries in your stylesheets are unused). There is more information about it on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/CSS_Coverage”>MDN here. Currently only works on Nightly builds of Firefox but hopefully will make it to Aurora soon (the channel I use).
G C Marty explains his quest to play his huge collection of DVDs on his mobile phone directly in the browser. His aim was to replicate the full DVD experience including menus, chapters, multiple angles, audio tracks and subtitles. He tried several methods, including using a proxy server to decode the video in real time and send it to the mobile browser via WebRTC which failed with sync issues and high hardware requirements and pre-converting DVDs into WebM using a Raspberry Pi running nginx to do the streaming. He released his project in open source on github.
