Well, we just started really messing around with the latest iPhone SDK and OS, and came across something that’s pretty cool. Finally we have YouTube support in the web browser! Don’t get extremely excited though; this is not Flash support. It’s a plugin that enables you to click on an embedded YouTube video, which will then in turn open up the movie player and stream the video. This has worked with every single video we’ve tried so far, but does not work on as that checks for an installed Flash player. Check out the little bit we recorded above to see it in action
