Over Fifty Percent of Video in H.264 is Now HTML5

Mefreedia, a media search research firm, released some interesting data results this week detailing how strong the HTML5 movement, heavily influenced by Apple, is doing on the Net. The results presented showcase that over 50% (roughly 54% to be more precise) of video encoded with the H.264 video codec on the Net is available in HTML5. That’s double the share of what it was on the Web just under half a year ago. The cause for the transition in video is attributed the substantial boom of the mobile computing industry, led, of course, by Apple’s iOS mobile platform.
