    Well this is not good because the internet browser supports flash and then youtube is converting its catolog of videos by june to h.264 streaming which is not flash and will not work...this is why some videos dont work already on the wii...cause they are in this new encode...now what will nintendo do? will they upgrade the browser to support h264?

    I think it means there will be a backend connection specifically optimized for AppleTV. Otherwise it would break compatibility with every other browser.

    I bet the OSX86 forums would know more....

    Edit: Rumors are apple pushed this hard to support the Iphone! Nothing comes for free so its also rumored that Apple gave youtube the help to change the backend storage of videos in order to save space on file servers.

    I guess this was announced back in Janurary and we all missed it!
    From an interview with the New York Times
    Markoff: “Flash?”
    Jobs: “Well, you might see that.”
    Markoff: “What about YouTube–”
    Jobs: “Yeah, YouTube—of course. But you don’t need to have Flash to show YouTube. All you need to do is deal with YouTube. And plus, we could get ‘em to up their video resolution at the same time, by using h.264 instead of the old codec.”
