Videos are one of the most popular sources of entertainment for the mankind. In fact, in this tech savvy world, people sitting in offices, clubs, etc. like to watch videos- be it for learning purposes, for entertainment or for both. Considering the immense popularity of videos amongst people of all age groups, many companies working in a variety of sectors that include educational, industrial, non-profit, etc., have started to interact with their own end-users via videos (using a variety of platforms, including YouTube, MetaCafe, DailyMotion, etc).
However, most of the video sharing platforms use flash player to serve their users with high quality videos. But now, the scenario has started to change since HTML5 (the latest version of hypertext markup language), Apple iPhone and iPad have come into existence.
