HTML5 Logo

The development of an open, universally adopted standard for web video has long been the holy grail for web developers and anyone interested in hosting and distributing video themselves – certainly since Apple dropped Flash support in 2010 for some of its products1. In this search the video element of HTML5 (the latest revision of HTML – currently under development) is seen by many as the answer together with the adoption of at least one video format that is playable on all browsers. However, a new report from LongTail Video, the people behind the popular web video player – JWPlayer – indicates that agreement on this standard remains some way off.
