The talk of platform wars between Flash and HTML5 has apparently ended, at least publicly from Adobe's side.

Adobe's Kevin Towes tells Beet.TV that "the Web is ready for HTML5" and Adobe is supporting its development through its popular authoring tool Dreamweaver.

We spoke with him last week at the Streaming Media West conference. Beet.TV correspondent Jamison Tilsner caught up with him at the show.

He also speaks about the latest introduction of the company's Flash Media Servers and how it supports delivery of high quality video effectively through P2P and multicast to various devices including Google TV.
