We use Twitch to stream our podcasts at TR, and untold millions more use the service to entertain others with their live in-game exploits. We may all be able to breathe a collective sigh of relief soon when we use the service. Twitch announced yesterday that it's begun moving its streaming platform off Flash in favor of HTML5.
Right now, the company is only using HTML5 controls over a Flash video, and it expects a gradual rollout process for this new system. Still, the change is heralded as "an important step to releasing the much-anticipated full HTML5 player." We can't wait.
