Description:

The HTML 5 <video> tag is used to specify video on an HTML document. For example, you could embed a music video on your web page for your visitors to listen to and watch.

Any content between the opening and closing <video> tags is fallback content. This content is displayed only by browsers that don't support the <video> tag.
