Youtube Goes iPhone-Friendly With HTML5
 
Buy iPhone from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

Youtube's mobile site now supports everyone's favorite Flash video replacement: HTML5. That means Google can update its mobile presence on the iPhone without having to go through Apple anymore.
Although Youtube's standard video streaming would not work on the iPhone and many other handsets that don't support Flash, Google created special mobile apps that still allowed users to browse through Youtube's huge assortment of videos.

Today, though, users will be free to open up ther phone's Internet browser and stream content directly through there. Some Youtube apps have clunky navigation and are not as user-friendly as the interface people have grown to know and love on their computers.

"As the world continues to go mobile, we think this is a great improvement for users who want a more consistent YouTube across many devices, no matter where they are," wrote Google in its Youtube blog.

The new mobile Web site also promises increased speed, a more touch-friendly interface, the ability to "like" or "dislike" a video, and more frequent updates.

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.
