Bidisha About Bidisha

wanted to buy a new cell phone and her thorough research for gadgets revealed her passion for technology. Gradually, she found her drawn to everything related to technology and her work which involves extensive research and writing on new gadgets, apps, and smarter use of technology. Careful, her mission is to manipulate technology-naïve women to juice up their ordinary lives with use of technology.

The technology world is moving speedily and so as the web browser developers. According to a recent study conducted by Longtail Video, the company behind the popular JW Player, roughly 74% of browsers now support HTML5 video. The figure was around 66% in January 2012. It is a welcome move as more and more browser developers have started accepting and supporting the upcoming open standards.

HTML5 Video Support Rises to 74% on Browsers

The report notifies that most of the browsers today support around 90% of HTML5 video tag attributes. HTML5 video is now common in Android and iOS platforms. Desktop browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer 9 also support the HTML5 video. But, the previous Internet Explorer versions will never support the latest standard.

But, presently, only 50% of the browsers support full-screen playback functionality. Another problem with the HTML5 video is that there is no single standard for audio/video formats, and different browsers are supporting different standards. All-in-all, it will not be that easy for HTML5 video to overtake Flash completely on desktop computers and it may even take a number of years to do so.
