How does iPad play SWF file of lightbox video plugin?

May 14, 2012

Q: I use VideoLightBox. I checked the source code and found that it suggests that the mp4 is
being played through a flash file (player.swf) on the iPad i.e.


Do you know how this is possible given that there is no Flash player for the iPad?

A: VideoLightBox uses html5 technology when someone plays video on iPad (iPhone, Android). So, portable devices don't play SWF file.
