Tell me again how it's a well established standard?
HLS is an open standard based on well known technologies. It uses MPEG Transport Streams for storage, which have been used in broadcasting for 20+ years, and HTTPS for encryption which has been used on the web since it's inception.

The fact that it's supported by 56% percent of Android devices and 100% of iOS devices makes it supported by a bigger percentage of the total market then any similar technology. In fact I've done a lot of research in this area and the only alternatives are proprietary technologies with licensing fees or even worse OS support. In fact the the reason MS didn't include HLS in Win8 is because they are trying to push their own proprietary technology for video streaming instead. (like always) Eventually they will crack and add HLS. In the mean time there are 3rd party alternatives to add HLS to Win8.

They don't? Is/was there Silverlight (DRMed player) on Linux?
