Okay, so are we there yet? This is the question I find myself asking when trying to determine whether or not we are going to see HTML5 deliver on the promise of a new means of offering video anytime soon.
Despite the fact that I have seen more times than I can count, working HTML5 video offerings in action, this HTML5 article points out that we are still waiting on some key technologies to catchup before HTML5 can really make a serious debut.
At the end of the day, despite its lack of DRM support plus other shortcomings, it would appear that HTML5 is going to be adopted in a staggered format whether the world is ready for it or not. Personally, I don’t consider a lack of DRM a problem. But the media industry is likely to disagree.
