New Web format plays video on Apple mobiles
Since Flash videos don't play on Apple mobile products, users have to download the video file, then convert it to a format that can be viewed on an Apple mobile, then synch it with an iPhone, iPod or iPad.
So, Apple is behind a new HTML format that allows videos to play full screen on a mobile device without any special software.
EMOL.org is now reformatting our links to movies, videos and cartoons into the HTML5 format. Look for the MOBILE link to movies that play on mobile devices.
To prevent unsolicited downloads over cellular networks at the user’s expense, embedded media cannot be played automatically in Safari on iPhone OSthe user always initiates playback. A controller is automatically supplied on iPhone or iPod.
On iPad, the video currently plays in this default space. On iPhone or iPod touch, the video plays in full-screen mode once the user initiates it, and the default space is allocated to a placeholder on the webpage.
The browser allocates space, provides a default controller, loads the media, and plays it when the user clicks the play button. It’s all automatic.
