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

 <source src="http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.ogv" type='video/ogg' />
</video>

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.
