    I am wanting to build a website that is designed for the iphone/ipod on 4.0 iOS.

    I was wanting to have streaming video's on it but it's harder than i thought. I will try explain as much as I can.


    the website is going to be a bit like youtube. where you click on a video and it loads the player on iPhone/iPod and plays the video. I don't know how to get it to work though. what formats to use ect, because from what I know youtube uses flash video's but the iPhone/Ipod doesn't support flash but suports .mov files so how would I get my flash video's working on a stream on the iPhone.

    Can anyone help or point me in the right direction.

    Thanks, Invisible Man

    So are all Youtube video's automatically converted to MP4/QT format to support the quick time player on iPhone/iPod?


    And is they a script/plugin that converts a flash stream into MP4 when someone clicks play. so to describe more:

    website> flash movie> click play> script activates> streams to iPhone MP4> QuickTime opens and plays stream.

    No, every Youtube video has a mp4 version created when it's uploaded, you can even see it in your normal browser by adding a code to the end of the url of a Youtube video iirc.
