    Im sorry I am a little dumb on this topic.. but how does a ios device play flash content on popular sites such as cnn, vimeo, espn? on a ipad/iphone the video appears as flash and then something happens and the famous ios play icon appears. whats happeing? is the flash converting it to html or quicktime?? do these popular websites have a special flash player that converts the video or something else is happening? Thank you

    They have a html5 and or QuickTime version on the server. It plays that.
