• HTML5 Playback Now Up to 69% of Online/Mobile Video

    MeFeedia released its latest analysis of HTML5 playback adoption, finding that 69% of H.264 (the dominant video format) video is now available for HTML5 playback. As the chart below shows, that's roughly 7x the level it was in Jan. '10, although adoption appears to be slowing a bit since Feb. '11 (see chart below). Separately, MeFeedia found that WebM, Google's open source format accounts for less than 2% of video, though that will increase as YouTube converts its videos to WebM

    MeFeedia's data are drawn from its index of 30 million videos from 30,000 sites including Hulu, CBS, ABC, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion and others.
