    Depends on the hardware (processor), codecs also connection to get fluide playback, Video streaming is a one-way quasi real-time data transport, mobile video streaming is characterized by low resolutions and low bitrates. Transcoding adjusts the bit rate required to send the stream over a low-bandwidth network. The better the network connection, the better the video image quality. H.264 combines high quality with low memory sizes, allowing for seamless video. Players implemented in HTML5, Flash and Silverlight receive these streams and play them.

      Playback of MP4/H.264 is supported by all Android devices back to Android 1.0. Now if some android mobiles are equipped with different android OS that do not support t H.264 streaming then not all android mobiles support t H.264 streaming also depend on the hardware acceleration.
