Multimedia, AV While Adobe previously said it would support Google's WebM video format within their Flash Player software, it doesn't look like this support will be arriving soon. Adobe's MAX 2011 conference took place last week in Los Angeles. During a Q&A session, WebM support in Flash was talked about. After Adobe was questioned about the WebM support, the response was, "Yes, on the priority list it's not very high because we don't have a lot of customers or real customers who want to do production with WebM. The problem on the production side is that encoding WebM is simply too slow, it's not real time. And it's not JDI too (just do it). Yes, it's a lot of work for us."

In fairness (and what I considered to be your possible point, even if expressed in a curious way vs. one saying; but it apparently isn't), the opposite situation - the usual form of this saying, "cart before the horse" - could be seen as analogous to what you proposed, and as "desirable" here.

What is the horse if not what propels the whole thing - the servers and content? ;) What is the cart if not the consumers, browsers which need to play it?

Too big of a stretch, I guess... ;)
