Steve Jobs Makes Ground In Apple / Adobe Flash Feud

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.

The company is currently running a self-promoting ad campaign and seems to be getting worried about the future, looks like they might have every reason to be. Click here for the full story on this.
