Plugins For Videos Will Be Useless Soon.

YouTube recently announced support for a prototype player that uses HTML 5. Youtube can only use the Chrome, Safari, and the ChromeFrame plugin for Internet Explorer.HTML 5.0 received its coming-out release at the Google I/O conference in May 2009; in December, Google said that it would eventually drop its Google Gears offline utility in favor of HTML 5.0.

For video, HTML 5.0's chief advantage is that it includes video as a supported tag. According to proponents, this allows simplified coding, and the ability to jump in and out of video streams at various places without the need for buffering.As such, however, the first uses of HTML 5.0 are little more than prototypes. "Our support for HTML5 is an early experiment, and there are some limitations," YouTube said in a blog post authored by Kevin Carle and Chris Zacharias, both engineers for the company. "HTML5 on YouTube doesn't support videos with ads, captions, or annotations and it requires a browser that supports both the video tag and h.264 encoded video (currently that means Chrome, Safari, and ChromeFrame on Internet Explorer). We will be expanding the capabilities of the player in the future, so get ready for new and improved versions in the months to come."

" The whole experience of browsing will be changed from now on" said Chris David Senior Developer with Symbyo Technologies - a Global leader in web development and RIA applications-. "This technology will empower the user experience with videos as by reducing the need for proprietary plug-in-based rich Internet application (RIA) technologies such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Sun JavaFX, with the "video" tag any video content could be trimmed down considerably by shrinking the video capability to a line of code or two. without the need to have a plugin installed" he said in a statement.
