Web Video on Desktop and Devices - Flash and HTML
Right now video is a bit of a mess on the web.
The most widely supported platform for playing video on the desktop is Flash. But some devices notably the iPad and iPhone don't support Flash. If you want to be able to play your video on multiple platforms and devices what can you do?
However the Flash player in Chrome will play H.264 videos just fine even when this happens.
We also help switch to HTML5 video with a dynamic player swap, to help support this environments that don't have Flash Player capabilities.
No confirmation if they are dropping support for H.264 on Android as well. I would assume not.
