Gone in a Flash: Twitch switches vid controls to HTML5

Streaming gamer platform Twitch is following YouTube’s lead and ditching Adobe’s besieged video player Flash.

The redesign moves the video controls from Flash to HTML5 and Javascript. Twitch stresses that the video itself is still in Flash “underneath the controls.” However, the gaming giant also says the transfer is an important step to releasing a full HTML5 player.

“You’ll begin to see the new player on channel pages first,” reads a blog post from Twitch. “As previously mentioned, this is a gradual roll out. If you are not part of our initial pool of users, please be patient as we release the redesigned player at a steady pace.”
