finally got to play with a Touch today at a local Apple store...
pretty cool -

surfed to a couple of our websites,
and discovered that the embedded YouTube HTML code can't be handled by the Safari browser.... it must be able to understand "<objects>"
So - I guess I'll have to modify our pages with a simple image & hotlink.
Does it handle Flash ok ?

here's our traditional coding from YouTube -

--
<object width="320" height="262">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/tVMuBiqEHoY">
</param>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
</param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/tVMuBiqEHoY" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="320" height="262">
</embed>
</object>

you can only embed mp4 files directly. Safari on the touch doesn't support flash (and probably never will)
