The Future of Video, H.264 and Flash
[T]he scenario I foresee:
- Major online video providers (Netflix, Amazon, Vimeo, Major League Baseball, etc.) already have invested in H.264, both technically and legally.
- These providers, right now, today, send H.264-encoded video in one of two ways: directly, to clients with native H.264 playback; and wrapped in Flash, for web browsers with Flash Player installed.
- Chrome drops support for H.264 and these simply send Chrome users H.264-encoded video via Flash.
- These services continue to ignore devices and clients that support neither straight H.264 nor Flash Player (e.g. Firefox running on Ubuntu).
