still being lame.
The short and sweet is that I hide a video player on the page then copy the image data from each frame, drawing it onto the canvas in the next position.
I think there is a real future in hiding video tag presentation and then incorporating that data into canvas.
Animation identical to Motion w/ Image just with a video instead of an image, watermark code from here
I promise to be less lame with these experiments soon
This did expose a strange bug in Firefox. Placing semi-transparent text on a canvas with a similar or no background-color results in the text with a strange green/blue/yellow artifact outlining the letters. In the end I did work around it, but got tired of mucking around and decided to just leave it as an example of a bug. So in Firefox you're seeing the issue, not so in Chrome or Safari.
