If I have a video in only two formats (ogg and webm), can I add both as sources and have the media player automatically detect which one to use?  Or do I need to do the necessary browser checks before adding the source to the player?

Hello Kevin,

Possible solution is to append all the sources to the generated video tag using jQuery after the widget is initialized.

e.g.

var vid = $('#mediaplayer video');
      vid.removeAttr('src');
      vid.append('<source src="http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.webm" />');
      vid.append('<source src="http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.mp4" />');

Below you will find a small sample which demonstrates the above approach:
