Video For Ipads
The iPad 3 is a high performance device that comes with a powerful processor, plenty of storage and iOS 5, but unfortunately lacks Adobe Flash support which is used for most videos. However, you will still have the chance to enjoy watching videos on your iPad thanks to a new standard – HTML5. Here are a few popular websites known for their collection of HTML5 videos. You should visit them if you are interested in watching diverse video content directly on your new iPad.
Vimeo is one of the websites that have recently released on the market a player designed to support HTML5. According to its officials, you will have the chance to access and watch almost 90% of the videos uploaded on this website directly on your new iPad 3. This new Vimeo player loads quickly and allows you to switch from one video to the other without being delayed by buffering. In addition, downloads require fewer minutes to complete than usual. You should also keep in mind that if you access a video that requires Adobe Flash support you need to press on the “Switch to HTML5” option in order to watch it on your iPad.
Another site with added HTML5 support for videos is TED Talking which is known for its interesting content. On this website you will find up to 18-minute inspirational videos that cover various events from all around the world and speeches/interviews that involve world leaders and experts. You will be impressed by the user friendly interface and the organized manner in which the information is presented. You will also be able to focus exclusively on your favorite videos related to technology, science or design. You will also have full access to the most viewed and commented videos on the website.
The New York Times video section is also accessible for all iPad 3 users because it provides HTML5 support. So, you will be able to watch all the videos available on the New York Times website and browse them by category (you will find categories like politics, science, sports, health, travel and interviews). It’s fun to enjoy so easily video content on the go.
You should also know that three major networks, ABC, CBS and NBC, have made sure that their fans can access their video content on the new iPad 3 by releasing new apps and making their websites iPad compatible. Once again, the HTML5 standard makes it possible to enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows directly on your tablet.
These are only a few of the websites that provide video content without requiring Adobe Flash support. It seems that Apple was right to say that Flash alternatives are coming.
