Debunking HTML5 Video Myths: A Guide for Video Publishers

Now that Google has made the decision to remove H.264 from Chrome, it’s more important than ever to pick the right video formats for online video distribution. Many claims about HTML5 have been laid down by both standards and Flash proponents, and not all of them are based on fact.

At the Streaming Media East show, on May 10th and 11th, we’ve got Robert Reinhardt, author of over a dozen books on Adobe Flash doing a presentation on “Debunking HTML5 Video Myths: A Guide for Video Publishers” as part of our HTML5 track. In this session, Robert will walk you through the capabilities of HTML5 and the Flash platform as well as the codecs they support, including WebM and H.264. Learn the effect HTML5 will have on video encoding and distribution in the future and how HTML5 may impact your business.
