Key findings

  • In 2018 264/AVC dominates video codec usage globally, used by 92% of developers in the survey. However, H.265/ HEVC has expanded rapidly, up from less than a third (28%) in 2017.
  • AV1 is poised to accelerate, with double the planned usage rate since 2017, to 29% globally.
  • Apple HLS and MPEG-DASH remain the dominant streaming formats in 2018 with over half of developers surveyed embracing MPEG-DASH and over 3/4 embracing HLS.
  • Software is the most popular and fastest growing choice for video encoders, but hardware encoders continue to hold steady, declining just 3 points in the last year.
  • HTML5 is by far the most widely used format for video and audio delivery, with 87% of providers using it today.
