Re: It took them fucking long enough
It's comments like this that show the complete (or perhaps willful) lack of understanding about the state of HTML5 video.
Despite the hyperbole, HTML5 video implementations and support still vary wildly between browsers and OS, particularly when it comes to DRM: just look at the number of comments here referencing hidden settings and developer flags.
iOS got HTML5 video first because it requires HLS, a format that only has half-arsed support on Android and almost no support at all on desktop browsers.
A Flash free world is coming, but until all major browsers finally implement a standard platform for encrypted video which is enabled by default, media companies will be forced to continue using Flash to fill the gaps.
If all the effort that went into publicly hating Flash went into lobbying browser developers, maybe we'd get there sooner.
