Till now, H.264 is still a dominant video codec for web and mobile video. H.264 can be played on 98% of web browsers (either through the Flash Player or natively in Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and IE), on many mobile devices (including the iPhone/iPod/iPad, Android, Blackberry, PSP) and on some broadcast televisions, Blu-ray, etc.
