YouTube and HTML5


This blog post is older than 4 years and its content may be out of date.

Today I noticed with joy that YouTube seems to have finally moved completely to using HTML5 to play their videos, without the need to participate in the beta as required before. I noticed this as I was astounded by the fact that YouTube worked on a freshly installed Archlinux although no Flash was installed before. This is a another step taken towards a Flash-free future ;)
