    YouTube user InfoZenn has posted a very nice walkthrough of iOS 5 on an iPad. Amongst many of the new features, he also shows off some of the new multi-touch gestures that were originally tested in iOS 4.3. Swiping can be used to switch applications (left/right) or to bring up the multitasking bar (up). Pinching with four or five fingers can also be used to return to the home screen. iOS 5 is due for release sometime this fall.

    Please take the responsibility of converting videos from Flash as not everybody has flash installed their machines or iOS devices?

    Thanks

    This video works fine on iOS devices. YouTube also serves up non-flash content if you have things configured properly.

    Theres a great web browser in the app store that detects flash video on your iOS device and it will be converted so that you can watch it, its a must need app called "Sky Fire"

    I think you have to try to get youtube to not work on an iOS device.


    That being said, iOS 5 looks great. Never having to use the home button = win.

    This post brought to you by Sky Fire mobile browser for iOS.

    I seriously do hope that with iOS 5, the output size while mirroring to a TV, will be bigger preferably wide screen, those black bars on the sides really do bug me.

    Thanks for the video demo! Can’t wait for fall. Those gestures will encourage me to use multi-app workflows in a much more desktop-like way.

    (It’s odd to me how everyone seems to use an awkward “claw” motion for the 4-finger swipes. A flat-hand swipe is much easier than just using the very fingertips. In other words, you can swipe just like you’d do with 1, 2 or 3 fingers--only with 4 or 5. It doesn’t matter what angle your fingertips are lined up at, so you don’t have to turn your hand sideways for a sideways swipe. Yet I can’t find a single video on YouTube that doesn’t use “the claw”!)

    Sometimes there is a short delay, after the video goes onto YouTube, before the non-Flash conversion is ready. For brand-new videos I sometimes have to re-try.

    Sequences Shortened

    This needs one of those patented Apple-ad "sequences shortened" disclaimers.

    I think they had to build that in as part of the "PC Free" feature of iOS 5. In case someone wants to use an iPad and/or iPhone as their only computing device.

    Whoops. I apologize in that case. I am posting from OS X Lion Safari and I don't have flash on this machine, yet. I do have HTML5 beta switched on; but still couldn't get the video. Instead, I'd to switch over to Chrome to get this running.

    If you don't mind, can you explain those settings required to get Youtube to play this particular video?

    Regards

    On iOS, YouTube videos from the browsers are automatically launched via in browser player.
    And if you don't have flash then where the heck are you? Under a rock?

    Flash is included in the Google Chrome package. So technically you already have Flash on your computer.

    That isn't the point. People use safari as well. I bet lots of them.

    I have the gestures on my iPad running 4.3.3 and they work very well.

    So many new features in iOS 5, should be a nice update in the fall.

    An extension like ClickToFlash will replace the Flash version with the HTML5 version automatically.
