They are using Apple HTTP Streaming, an open standard they pioneered.

Long article short, it's an M3U playlist for serving chunks of video in sequence, but more than one stream can be specified in the playlist, allowing for switching between codecs, sizes, bitrates, etc without rebuffering the whole thing. All through the HTML video element. Very cool.

My guess is that this is what the PS3 is also using. The PS3 list the codec as AVC while watching a movie which is also know as H.264.

politics:- The latest round was fired by Apple CEO, Steve Jobs in a lengthy blog post entitled ‘Thoughts on Flash.‘ No it’s not some new memory technique or a way to save your childhood before old age strips you of it. It’s what he sees the problem being between Apple and Adobe. Jobs states that the companies have and still work together. It’s true, many Mac users are also Adobe product users. But he also goes on to say that the relationship has soured over the years and beyond this particular area, there are no joint ventures really. Then he goes on to discuss the open and closed nature of the technologies involved, first saying that Apple is open and Flash is closed. Personally, I think both are closed. Both are proprietary and that in and of itself means they are going to be fairly closed, as in not open source. Adobe says Apple mobile users are missing out on web content. It’s true, there is a lot of Flash out there on the web, games, video, applications, entire websites. Personally, I hate Flash-based websites, love Flash games and generally don’t care about the player’s technology (when surfing and watching video), unless of course I’m on my iPhone. Then it’s all just missing. Would it be beneficial to users to have Flash on the iPhone? Absolutely. Should all developers be forced to create another version of their content just for Apple mobile users? No! That’s far from setting in the medical school site any type of standard. In fact, it’s more like a double standard isn’t it? “Oh Flash is fine for computers, but Apple mobile needs something else.

No Flash support is one of the big reasons I hate Apple.

Tory Burch

The typical style of the Tory Burch brand of shoes often pays homage to the styles popularized in the 1950's and 1960's for a sophisticatedly modern throw-back, and manages to create an elegant, classic, and yet not overstated look. Tory Burch shoes began her self-named brand in 2004, designing not only chic shoes but also jewelry, handbags, children's swimwear, and women's cardigans.The versatility of Tory Burch sale footwear is definitely one of the biggest perks of buying within the brand; soccer moms and coy businesswomen alike can wear the line and look fabulously fashionable for a reasonable price.
