Youtube Adds HTML5 Embedding To Videos

Monday, July 26th, 2010

HTML5 continues to chip away at Flash’s domination of web video technology …

The popular video hosting site Youtube has been offering limited beta HTML5 viewing capabilities for some time now on their website. HTML5 video playback was limited to Google Chrome and Safari, and only directly available on Youtube after joining the beta channel.

Webmasters and Internet users who wanted to embed videos on third party websites had no choice but to embed the Flash player, as there was no option to change the embed code to HTML5 video.
