We have a large and growing site that is music related and our users can upload videos of them playing their instruments. We have around 2k videos and once they are uploaded a cron converts them into flash, watermarks them with our logo and presents them on our site. With the apple push to abandon flash and the HTML5 push im wondering how you guys feel this should be handled and what you suggest. I am a non techy so I would need some info that I could relay to my coding team. We get around 10 video submissions to the site a day and growing and we do watermark them with our logo. Thanks!

As far as I know, flash is not going to be abandon. HTML 5 will even have its own tag for video. Any abandonment will never happen. The darn browser developers are STILL making new version of browsers that still support the old, old, crappy code from decades ago. I wouldn't worry about losing flash support.

Yeah and the iPad too. I haven't arrived at an acceptable solution other than to ID the OS and have a .mov alternative. Which is so 1995 . . .
