HTML5 on YouTube

21 01 2010

//Yeps, a quick post for today!…. You hate to keep downloading the flash player plug-in? Well…. This will not be a problem anymore; YouTube now supports (mostly) HTML5 videos. With HTML5, you will be able to watch videos (HTML5 supported videos) without Adobe Flash Player.

Visit this page to join the HTML5 Experiment.

Once activated, check out this video, (Use Google Chrome, it supports the <video> tag in HTML5). Btw, the new player design looks cool, lol.

What is HTML5?

HTML5 is the next major revision of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), the core markup language of the World Wide Web, ~Wikipedia. Want to know more? Check out this video(features you want desperately but still can’t use).

Finally… great to get rid of flash and happy to see YouTube begin to support HTML5. HTML5 Rocks 😉
