HMTL5 allows video content to be embedded on webpages without the need for the Adobe Flash plug-in or any other plug-ins for that matter and now CBS is attempting to use the new coding technology as a way to show their TV shows via the iPad without Flash.
Currently the technology is only showing the “full screen” feature with no video, however CBS plans to launch the program so that their videos fit into a new iFrame on the page with fully loaded features like you would find on popular videos sites including Hulu and YouTube.
Apple doesn’t play nice with Adobe Flash, Steve Jobs has even went on the offensive in the past, blaming the plug-in for many of the companies own web browser (Safari) crashes.
With YouTube and other major sites beginning to test HTML5 and the decent number of iPad pre-orders, there may be one thing the iPad actually helps revolutionize…the way we watch videos online. [Electronista]
