HTML5 and Adobe Flash's Failures

Since Apple refused to accept Flash and Windows 8 Phone and tablet will not support Flash, and Adobe want to focus on HTML5 development, Adobe abandons mobile Flash development.

Flash Video is a container file format used to deliver video over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player versions 6–11. Flash Video content may also be embedded within SWF files. There are two different video file formats known as Flash Video: FLV and F4V. The audio and video data within FLV files are encoded in the same way as they are within SWF files. Flash Video FLV files usually contain material encoded with codecs following VP6 video compression formats. The most recent public releases of Flash Player also support H.264 video and HE-AAC audio.

Today David Murphy reported "Who's to Blame for Adobe Flash's Failures?" in pcmag.com. In his report, he referred to Cera Technology CEO Michael Mace's words "The root causes of the Flash failure should blame to a fundamental misreading of the mobile market, and to short-term revenue goals that were more important than long-term strategy at both Macromedia and Adobe. The full Flash player had been designed for PCs; it was too fat to run well on a smartphone." ...

Currently HTML5 Video Player is an opt-in trial for YouTube. It supports browsers that support both the video tag in HTML5 and either the h.264 video codec or the WebM format (with VP8 codec).
