On My Phone – More Video Please!

The US lags way behind much of Asia and Europe when it comes to watching video on our cell phones (question: how many people need to ditch their landlines before we can just say “phone” and everyone know we mean “cell phone?”).

Mashable has a good look at what’s holding us back (technology, lack of rich content, etc.) and sees some hope in the future.

I think that wider adoption on mobile video viewing will come quickly, especially as handsets like the iPhone make the viewing process much more enjoyable.  The iPhone’s lack of Flash-compatibilty is the only thing that stops me from watching loads of videos online while I’m away from my laptop.

It would also be a great boon to producers and distributors of things like webseries that could automatically push new episodes to your phone much like you can have email pushed.

  1. Dont let the lack of flash support for I phones bother you, I use an app called Jaksta to rip the vids off the web and it even does the conversion for you.

    Easy !!
