    Question Online Flash Videos and Youtube?

    I understand that the ipad 2 does not support flash videos. But doesn't Youtube use flash videos? Does this mean that Youtube does not work on the ipad 2?

    YouTube has started using html5 on some videos.

    However it doesn't feature all the videos the full monty Youtube does. Nor does it have a full search option using URL. It calls to mind monty python cheese shop, and one more reason not to rely on Safari.

    Sorry, I'm new here. And no, I didn't know that. I don't have an ipad yet.

    Anyway, my point is that if it can play flash videos on youtube, then I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be able to play flash videos on other websites.

    The YouTube website the iPad uses is HTML-5, not flash. The iPad is fully HTML-5 compatible.
