Is there a universal streaming protocoll that both, Android and iOS devices can play, within HTML5 video objects?

It looks like even HTML5 could not "force" a universal solution to simplify publisher's work.

Extracted from here and supported by the W3 Wiki:

Currently iOS is the only platform with adaptive streaming, supporting Apple's own HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol. Android 4 introduced HLS support too, but its market share is still low.
