Although HTML5 is becoming the standard for web development to many, only 30% of users can view an HTML5 web page. This is due to the fact that HTML5 video is still a new technology being introduced to most new devices. This has occured largely, many believe, due to Apple's decision not to work with Adobe Flash on any of their mobile devices in the future.

Some devices such as the iPhone, iPad and those running the Android OS have problems during playback. Many times devices and home grown solutions will not show HTML5 pages or content the same way. Many companies are begining to find that their home grown solutions for HTML5 don't work according to plan.
