Flash · HTML5 · Apps Cautions – Further Review• HTML5 standards are not fully developed• The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working on HTML5 standardization for years.• The HTML Working Group hope to present recommendations for the standards by May 2014 • They hope over the subsequent years they will be implemented • However, it’s up to the browser developers to adopt the standards into their functionality which require them to go through their own technical, legal and business standards. • Also, there has not yet been a consensus on a single video format (Source) Create, Share & Socialize Your Business Video sm #KZO 12
