YouTube extends HTML5 to embedded videos
YouTube is currently running tests to further support the technology HTML5. More specifically, the officers of Google are testing a new code to integrate into third pages (embed code), which will use either Flash, or HTML5, as appropriate. So far, the code used to integrate the videos based solely on Flash.
The new system uses iFrames and chooses Flash or HTML5 depending on the device and browser.
The new code would normally play embedded videos on YouTube and even iPhone. For now, only developers have access to the new code, which would normally be incorporated on YouTube sometime in the near future.
