Apple iPhone Embedding Video in a site Details

The art of embedding video into a website is a question brought up by a user over at slashdot and the user says there is a lack of information provided by Apple on just how to achieve this with the Apple iPhone.

The user states that the likes of YouTube still fires Flash at the iPhone even though the iPhone lacks Flash support. While he has reviewed some of the Flash code and formulated a hack to he believes he is missing a “trick of the trade,” and wants to know how it’s done.

Well apparently all one needs is a direct link to an Apple compatible MPEG4 video with the correct mediatype on a server that supports the Range HTTP header, and the iPhone will automatically allow seeking in video.
