RipCode: Flash for the iPad

RipCode: Flash for the iPad

The iPad doesn't have many real shortcomings. Pundits can complain about the lack of USB ports and a webcam, but neither of those things seem to be very upsetting to Apple's target demographic. Not that many people have a burning need to video-chat, and the iPad's seamless design is a fair trade for a bit of USB hassle. One area where the iPad unquestionably falls flat is Flash support.

But not for long. SlashGear reports that a company called RipCode has just announced a new clientless Flash codec that allows Flash video to play on the iPad. It can handle resolutions from QVGA to 1080p. QuickTime, MP4 progressive, and MPEG-TS are also supported. As is Microsoft Smooth Streaming and RTSP.

RipCode's TransAct Transcoder V6 transcodes content in the cloud, before said content even reaches the iPad. And it's not an app, so Apple can't ban it for making nice with Adobe! They might find some way to disable it, though. That all depends on just how hateful Steve Jobs feels today.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
