Apple’s insistence upon keeping Adobe Flash technology off its iDevices is drawing a line in the sand for many companies. Among those choosing Team Apple is Internet television site Revision3.
If you’re a Revision3 fan who also happens to own an iPad (or other Apple iDevice), the company has some good news for you: They’re switching their Internet television streams to HTML5, hedging their bets (along with device maker Apple) that the open specification will indeed trump Adobe Flash in the battle for mobile video dominance. Among the tech-centric shows featured on the site are Diggnation, Film Riot and Tekzilla.
“Revision3 has chosen,” the company’s latest press release touts. “Revision3.com now supports video playback on the iPad, thanks to their first foray into HTML5. Fans can now watch video straight from the website on their iPad. Revision3 is the web's top television network, with a passionate and involved fan community, and this decision is sure to send ripples through the ongoing debate about the transition towards HTML5, and the future of Flash.”
Of course, if streaming video over the web isn’t your cup of tea, Revision3 shows are still available via subscription on iTunes, where you can sync them over to your iDevice for offline viewing. Revision3 notes that there’s an issue with HD videos not syncing via iTunes at the moment, but the company’s Large quality versions have been optimized for the iPad and work great in the meantime.
“We hope you enjoy Revision3 shows on your iPad with this new HTML5 based solution,” the company’s recent blog entry concludes, “and this is just the first of several announcements coming in the upcoming weeks about how Revision3 is embracing HTML5, so keep your eye on Revision3.com for more great announcements!”
