Flash vs iPhone

This whole "Flash on the iPhone eminent"-rumors is weird.

Given that Flash now supports H.264 as a video codec, maybe iPhone supporting Flash is just that: Apple will support Flash video if the codec used is H.264.

If YouTube starts encoding the videos as H264 (maybe as an option at first given that Flash with H.264 support is probably still in the single digits market share), then this makes total sense for Apple to support. Even the original rumor article mentions that YouTube had to convert some of their catalog to H.264 to support Apple TV and the iPhone.

Anyway, back to work.
