Facebook videos make switch to HTML5

Facebook logoSocial networking website Facebook has begun switching some of its videos over to HTML5, accounts say. Formerly, any videos native to the site were displayed in a Flash player. With the conversion to HTML5, videos should now be compatible with Apple handhelds such as the iPad and the iPhone. By extension they should also playable on other devices that support HTML5, such as Android smartphones.

Not all videos are available in the new format. Some clips, namely older ones, continue to be hosted in Flash, and will generate error messages on incompatible devices. The transition nevertheless undermines Flash creator Adobe, whose platform has been targeted for replacement by Apple, even though the technology is standard for online video and advertising.
