Is Flash Video Dying?

Posted on: April 7, 2009

Some have come to argue that Flash is on its way out because its not being supported by Apple.

I’d say that sure, using Quicktime encoded H.264 video is fast…. if its coming off their servers for apple trailers but try loading your basic 2 minute video from your iPhone 3G or iPod touch and its slow as.

Dont get me wrong, I’ve drunk the coolaid, I love apple products but I dont believe that a format as widely used as flash for not only video but in the construction and development of some of the greatest websites around, should be kept from a product that is as widely used as iPhones and iPods.

Im curious to hear from you all about where you think video is going and whether flash should be kept as the medium or quicktime, and more so, why?
