Ok, so it’s been more then one year now since the html5 madness. Flaming versus discussions have mostly stopped or at least are not that flaming. Clients are changing their sites from flash to html5 or at least providing fallbacks ( the smart ones ). Stock flash is dropping, everyone wants their slider and galleries in jQuery now. But what should never change for at least 2-3 years is flash video. Why ?
- browser leaders can’t get to agree on only one format and does not seem they will agree anytime soon, so you’ll need to provide 2-3 formats for videos to work on all platforms
- html5 players just seem laggy on desktop browsers. I don’t know why.. it’s just not that smooth feeling that you get with flash.
- YouTube and Vimeo use primarily Flash. They must know something right 😛 ?
