What's the best way to check if the browser supports html5 using jQuery?

I want to use a fallback solution for HTML5 / flash audio players.

I wonder if I can use jQuery to check if HTML5 is supported.

I know there is .support() ( http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.support/ ) but I'm not sure which would be a bullet proof check.


You can test for HTML5 features using Modernizr.


Try Modernizr. From documentation:

var audio = new Audio();
audio.src = Modernizr.audio.ogg ? 'background.ogg' :
            Modernizr.audio.mp3 ? 'background.mp3' :

EDIT: Now that the question has changed, this might be more in line with what you need.
