    any hopes as to how we'll be able to watch videos on sites? Without jailbreaking anyways. Is HTML 5 the only video saviour? If so, when is that coming to the iphone browser? Just questions that come to mind before I make the move from bb to iphone.

    The iPhone already supports the HTML 5 video tag, but it only can play back videos encoded in h.264.

    Well, you seem to have a jailbroken phone. Can you see flash videos on sites? Any work arounds?

    I think by the end of the year sites that want to have their content available on a mobile platform will move away from Flash completely (many already have). Sure, the Droid Incredible supports it, but the few demos of it I have seen pretty much backed up much of what Jobs said (crashes, etc.)./

    There was a workaround that worked for some videos, but I don't think it's being actively developed now. Personally, I don't find much need for Flash.

    The iPhone 4 does have Flash, LED.

    Flash memory too.

    Facebook *SAYS* they are working on it...I hate the fact that I can't play embedded videos.
