With the Apple Vs Adobe war heating up recently with both sides criticizing each other in what seems like a daily occurrence, Apple’s Steve Jobs seems to be heading closer to victory. A survey by video aggregator MeFeedia, shows that 26% of all video for playback is using the HTML5 video tag, and the H.264 codec.
This now means that owners of Apple’s portable devices can now get 26 per cent of video available on the web. The survey was a large one with over 30,000 sources, from sites like You Tube, DailyMotion, CNN, ABC, CBS, MTV and Vevo.
Adobe executives might be happy having 74 per cent share of video content, but the same survey was done at the beginning of this year with only 10 per cent being HTML5/H.264.
What do you think should Adobe be worried about HTML5?
