This could always be introduces specifically for responsive media

<media alt="My new cool car">
<source src=my_cool_car.ogg" type="video/ogg" media="min-width: 200px" />
<source src=my_cool_car.mp4" type="video/mp4" media="min-width: 200px" />
<source src=my_cool_car_small.ogg" type="video/ogg" media="max-width: 
200px" />
<source src=my_cool_car_small.mp4" type="video/mp4" media="max-width: 
200px" />
<source src="my_cool_car.png" media="min-width: 200px" />
<source src="my_cool_car_small.png" media="max-width: 200px" />
<img src="my_cool_car_fallback.gif" alt="My new cool car" />
