  1. 1. HTML5Coming to A Browser Near You<br /> How HTML5 will change the way we experience online video<br /> By Chris Minor<br /><br />
  2. 2. What is the Problem?<br />What is online video like now?<br />
  3. 3. 1) Too Many Plug-ins<br />- There is No Standard for Online Video -<br />
  4. 4. 2) Flash is Inefficient<br />- <br />Requires large amount of processing power:<br /> Longer loading time <br />- Not practical for mobile devices because of battery consumption <br />- Closed Source Code<br />
  5. 5. HTML 5<br />How does it differ?<br />
  6. 6. No More Plug-ins!<br />1) HTML 5 plays videos natively, No longer requiring plug-Ins to play online video. <br />2) HTML 5 does not rely on vendor-specific web tools. HTML 5 is open source.<br />3) New <tags> that index web content more intelligently, which allows search engines <br />to find your information more quickly and easily.<br />4) Most importantly: HTML 5 will set a video standard<br />
  7. 7. Designed for Mobile Devices<br />HTML 5 requires less energy and processing power making it practical for mobile internet <br />
  8. 8. Who’s On Board?<br />- Google built HTML 5 into YouTube. <br />- Vimeo and DailyMotion quickly followed suit<br />- Netflix and Hulu are planning to switch<br />- Microsoft announced support on the next version of IE<br />- Apple banned Flash from the iPhone, iPad Touch, and iPad<br />
  9. 9. The War Between Apple and Adobe<br />Apple’s Opinion<br />Flash is outdated<br />Flash is buggy and requires too much power<br />Flash is closed-source<br />Flash causes most crashes on the Mac<br />Cross-Platform Apps will degrade the quality of iPhone apps… “lose-the-experience of the iPhone”<br />Adobe’s Opinion<br />Apple wants total control<br /> - of apps<br /> - of people’s creativity<br /> - of online video<br />Flash is a necessity for web video<br />
  10. 10. Adobe Strikes Back<br />
  11. 11. What’s the Future of Online Video?<br />
  12. 12. HTML 5 Vs. Flash On The Web<br />“According to a survey conducted by video aggregator MeFeedia, 26 per cent of all web video is now available for playback with the HTML5 <video> tag and the H.264 codec. That means that 26 per cent of web video is now viewable on the iPhone/iPod/iPad.<br />
  13. 13. The Problem: Browsers Aren’t Ready<br />- Roughly 40% of Browsers can play back HTML 5 Video<br />- However, Internet Explorer – The dominant browser on the web, does <br />Not support HTML 5 video.<br /><ul><li>Even though YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, etc… support HTML 5, it does not mean</li></ul> they can always playback video, due to Browser restrictions. <br /><ul><li> Since there are so many browsers, devices, and plug-ins, creating a web standard is </li></ul>difficult, but this is exactly what HTML 5 hopes to do.<br />

  15. 15. The Tipping Point<br />iPhones, iPods, and iPads<br />account for the highest traffic<br />of mobile browsing<br />Because they do not support<br />flash, popular websites, <br />like The New York Times, <br />and CNN have already begun<br />adapting their site to work <br />on these devices.<br />- This ultimately lead HTML 5 to become more popular than Flash - <br />
