Multimedia, AV According to Hulu, HTML5 is not yet ready for its needs. "We continue to monitor developments on HTML5, but as of now it doesn't yet meet all of our customers' needs," Hulu writes, "Our player doesn't just simply stream video, it must also secure the content, handle reporting for our advertisers, render the video using a high performance codec to ensure premium visual quality, communicate back with the server to determine how long to buffer and what bitrate to stream, and dozens of other things that aren't necessarily visible to the end user."

Isn't that the whole problem? We don't need a player that does *everything*. We're trying to escape the bloat over here. All that other stuff they need to do, that's what scripting is for, client and/or server side.

Didn't they get the memo?
