More than half of online videos are already HTML5

The percentage of online videos that take advantage of the new HTML 5 web language, dispensing resources such as Flash, has doubled in the last five months, reveals the October statistic from the video rating site MeFeedia.

According to the count, 54 percent of the videos published online today are compatible with the new markup language that promises to facilitate the development of Web pages and allows the integration of videos on the sites using only a video tag.

The site highlights the “substantial growth” in the number of videos compatible with HTML5 and the growing adoption rate, stating that the Mobile platform is one of the responsible for the momentum shown.

Video supported in HTML5 is even identified as the most common solution when it comes to accessing videos via mobile devices, in equipment such as the iPhone, iPad and Android phones, for example, with the H.264 format being identified as the most common .

The comparative analysis of the number of videos compatible with the new language, measured at three times in 2010, also shows that, since the beginning of the year, the percentage of content supported by technology has multiplied by five, from 10 percent in January to 54 percent this month – as shown in the table below.
