According to Guthrie, Windows Azure Media is more and more open for streaming on-demand video to consumers on any device.
Guthrie, a corporate vice president in the Microsoft Tools and Servers group, writes that with Windows Azure Media Services, a customer can stream video to HTML5, Flash, Silverlight, Windows 8, iPad, iPhone, Android, Xbox, Windows Phone and other clients using a wide variety of streaming formats.
So Windows Azure Media is more and more open for streaming on-demand video to consumers on any device.

The value for developers comes with avoiding the hassle that comes in working with multiple media formats and encoding. Windows Azure handles much of the heavy lifting so developers can focus on building applications.
The new Windows Azure Media Service also has the capability to run one file format across multiple devices. One MP4 stream can run through Windows Azure and play on devices that support different formats.
