Over one quarter of the videos on the Internet are now available in H.264 format, according to the latest analysis from MeFeedia. Based on the company’s checks of its video index, 26% of videos available on the web are now available in H.264 format, compared with just 10% in January. Notably, most sites that support HTML5 automatically detect iPad users and switch to a compatible format, many recent news stories are available in H.264 while most older news content has yet to be re-encoded, and there is very little HTML5 supported episodic content available from major TV networks. MeFeedia’s video index includes over 30,000 sources, including Hulu, CBS, ABC, YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, MTV, and CNN. [via Fortune]
