Introducing The State of HTML5 Video Report

Jan 26, 2012


Update: JW7 is now available. Check it out here.

Today we announced the public launch of our latest resource, The State of HTML5 Video Report. For two years our JW Player team has researched and monitored the evolution of HTML5 video capabilities so that we could effectively support it. Beyond our own products, we believe that the community at large will benefit from this work. We are extremely pleased to share our detailed research with the community.

We grouped our test results into the few topics we’ve found to be the most critical. Each section is fleshed out, and to the best of our ability accurately represents the state of HTML5 online video today – complete with our published test pages & results. The topics covered in the report include:

  • Market Share of Browsers and Devices
  • Media Formats
  • Tag Attributes
  • Fullscreen Playback
  • Adaptive Streaming
  • Accessibility

Get full access to the online report here. Each time we update the report, we will post a notification on our Facebook page, as well as on our Twitter account. Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to stay informed.

Whether you are well-acquainted with HTML5, or just getting started, the content presented in our report is an indispensable resource for tracking the progress of HTML5 video. As HTML5 video progresses, we will update and amend this report to accurately reflect the state of the industry.

We have already received such a great response from our community, and as always appreciate the support. In addition to the applause, we have also received valuable feedback from other HTML5 experts, and intend to edit the report where necessary.

The JW Player team will be participating in discussions with the community around HTML5 video. Visit us on Facebook to join the conversation.
