They are what M$ in 90's.
I'm tasked to create webchat site. There where plenty load of technologies to deliver video and voice to viewer. However Apple gives only to HLS to play videos on their devices on web and no access to cameras from web. Also playing HLS on apple device gives a 20 sec delay to viewer.
Every other thing closed.
They reject Flash, they reject WebRTC. They reject anyhting but Apple.
Why ? is there any real technical reason ? I don't think so.
They just protecting to their iTunes Cash Cow.
we listen this song decade ago from M$, it was pretty boring and time consuming and now we have to play same boring song from you again.
Maybe you think, you pile of cash, your huge user base, your shiny inteface make this song better.
