QuickTime X and FLV Video Files

Correction: I’m pretty sure that the author of this web page has Perian installed on Snow Leopard. Several readers report that a clean installation of Snow Leopard has no support for FLV video files. The point still stands, though, that most consumer demand for “Flash” on the iPhone is really demand for Flash video playback.

Original Text: If it’s true that QuickTime X supports playback of .flv video files, you can draw your own conclusion about the chances that Apple will ever allow Flash on the iPhone OS.
