Flickr Videos Now Play on iPhones and iPods

Fantastic news from Flickr:

First, the sexy part — you can now view Flickr videos on your mobile phone! Videos uploaded by members will be immediately viewable through our mobile site, thanks to our friends in the Yahoo! Video Platform group. As of today this particular feature is available to iPhone and iPod Touch users only, but we expect to rapidly expand the number of devices that we support.

Right now it only works for clips that were uploaded today, but eventually they should catch up with all the video that’s been uploaded to Flickr. Here’s an example I uploaded earlier today (and the non-mobile Flickr page for the same clip).
