The Internet Archive now support Flash,HTML5 video

Today the Internet Archive signed a deal with Kaltera. The IA will be using Kaltera's software to manage their video libraries. The IA have over 500k video titles, most of which are CC licensed.

It's not much news, no. But the really neat part about this is that Kaltera's browser based video player is designed to detect whether your browser supports Flash or HTML5. It will then offer you a compatible video player.

There's already at least one video with the new player. You can find it here.

About Nate Hoffelder (11466 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
