Submission + - Jeroen Wijering weighs in on HTML5 video (

paimin writes: The HTML5 video scene is heating up. Jeroen Wijering, creator of the pervasive JW Player for Flash-embedded video playback, has posted a thoughtful blog entry on the state of HTML for video, virtually issuing a call-to-arms:
'Browser vendors should be stringent when building solutions that are both practical and compatible. If not, crossbrowser HTML5 video will be too difficult, not to mention expensive, to implement. This presents the risk of web development regression. In favor of its advancement, we cannot allow this to happen.' Concurrently, he has announced the JW Player for HTML5 beta.
