An anonymous reader writes “While the HTML 5 and Flash standard debate rages, Apple, a major promoter of HTML5, has allowed its iOS devices to run Flash videos. Apple has given approval to an app developed by Skyfire that translates Flash code into HTML5. According to CNN when a user clicks on a Flash video the Skyfire app downloads the Flash video on Skyfire’s server where the video is decoded and then encoded in HTML5 and is delivered to an iOS device. The app is embedded in the Safari browser.”
