Mozilla no longer maintains this project. However, if you think you can take it in a new, modern direction, get in touch with us and we can discuss transferring ownership of the project to you.


Mozilla's HTML5 Video Framework


Popcorn.js is Mozilla's HTML5 video and media library for the open web. It allows web developers, filmmakers, artists, designers and others to easily create timeline based web productions. Popcorn.js helps simplify media API and implementation differences between browsers and includes a powerful event system and a rich plugin architecture and plugins.

Popcorn.js can be used with almost any media type you can imagine, from HTML5 audio and video, to YouTube and Vimeo, to SoundCloud, etc. Popcorn.js also has plugins to allow content from popular web sites and services to be integrated easily, for example, Wikipedia, Facebook, Google Maps, etc.

Anything you can do on the web can be turned into a Popcorn.js plugin, and become part of a timeline-based web experience. Popcorn.js breaks video out of the box and allows media to fully interact with the rest of the web.

Try a live code example here.


The Popcorn.js community is a mix of developers, filmmakers, artists, and everything in between. If you are interested in using Popcorn.js or helping us build it, you can use one or more of the following:

For Plugin Authors

Popcorn.js offers a powerful plugin architecture. Plugins are a way for developers to wrap web functionality and allow it to be placed on a timeline, responding to a point in a video or other media resource.

Take a look at our growing gallery of officially supported plugins.
