I've done enough Google search on this topic, however I thought I'd reach out to experts.   Firefox supports the option to embed a VLC plugin into into the browser.   From their I could point to an H.264 stream sent via UDP, RTSP or...

What other browsers support the H.264 streaming option?     What is my alternative (search imagery instead of video - perhaps) for a browser agnostic video viewing experience?  Of course serving imagery immediately implies latency given the need to decode the transport stream but at least it'll be browser agnostic

You will want to use multiple formats

From videojs.com https://github.com/videojs/video.js/blob/v4.3.0/docs/guides/setup.md
<video id="example_video_1" class="video-js vjs-default-skin"
  controls preload="auto" width="640" height="264"
  poster="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.png"
  data-setup='{"example_option":true}'>
 <source src="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.mp4" type='video/mp4' />
 <source src="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.webm" type='video/webm' />
 <source src="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.ogv" type='video/ogg' />
</video>

Open in new window


I use http://www.squared5.com/ to convert my video.  For iphone/ipad you can use iTunes to convert.  They key is, you will want to use a fall back system like above.  This will let the browser decide which to use.
