CBS Preparing HTML5 Video Playback For iPad

CBS Preparing HTML5 Video Playback For iPad

Apple’s lack of Flash support of the iPad has been a major talking point recently, and now it seems that CBS has decided to toe the line, as it seems that CBS.com is testing using HTML5 to display its videos for the iPad instead of Flash. Some links labeled “iPad – test” have shown up on the site. While clicking on the link via a desktop browser takes you to the usual Flash version, if you use the iPad SDK Simulator to spoof your browser’s user agent and click on the link, you’ll see a video that seems to be using HTML5 instead of Flash. If more and more websites start to ditch Adobe Flash instead of HTML5, Apple will probably have the last laugh. Do you mind whether a site uses HTML5 or Flash to display videos, or have you not noticed the difference until recently?
