Better would be providing support for an industry standard, such as DASH 
(Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP - 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_Adaptive_Streaming_over_HTTP ) 
rather than using a vendor-centric solution like HLS.  Of course, that 
"better" is actually dependent on whether the industry actually goes 
with the industry standard rather than just going with Apple's HLS...
