CNN.com Specials: These new CNN commercials are hysterical, but that’s not the point (but they are funny as all get out — think of the ESPN SportsCenter commercials, just about CNN…)
They have me wondering about the future of embedded video formats like Real, Quicktime, and Windows Media.
These clips are done in Flash. I’ve never really thought of Flash as a video player, but Amazon’s new movie shorts are done in Flash too. It’s a lot less obstrusive than any of the other embedded formats, and everyone has the plugin.
Are Quicktime and Company done for video embedded in HTML? Or will this format kind of dangle in Slow Adoption Land like FlashPaper and its attempt to usurp PDF?
