    I tested that out by trying to watch a show on fox.com and this is th error message I got:

    We're sorry.
    This player is not enabled for HTML5 delivery.

    Funny, because the iPad is supposed to work with html5. It certainly does with Apple's html5 showcase website.

    Wonder what the problem is, improper html5 coding on Fox's part or what?

    I clicked on the "playback problems?" link on Fox's video page and submitted the problem. Will see what they say.

    Foxnews.com uses html5 per Apple's website.

    Went there and was able to play their videos fine.

    I don't quite get it. Where is the problem?
    Fox uses a player that isn't HTML5 compatible and tells you so.
    That's all there is to it.

    As every slightly intelligent website does, it checks your OS and browser, sees that you are using an iPad which can't do flash, and then checks if it has HTML5 to offer, as it knows that that is what the iPad expects.
    Not having HTML5, it tells you so, in order to prevent you from submitting a problem that isn't one. ;-)

    This was very informative. Thank you!


    So you think there is no problem? Why do folks think that Fox does or should use HTML5 compatible?

    But I guess, as Mark states, Fox.com doesn't support it.

    What is HTML5, anyways?

    I think you guys are reading the message incorrectly. It is telling you that the fox player is not ready to support a html5 device like the iPad, not that your iPad doesn't support html5...
