As demoed at Google I/O as part of GoogleTV, Youtube has released ‘Leanback’ for computers today. There are gobs of Flash involved so it doesn’t work on iDevices; nor will it ever. But it’s not bad for those with Mac Mini mediacenters, however.
Somehow, it doesn’t seem like a fantastic idea to base a new streaming video on Flash, especially when a company like Google could do a lot with HTML5. Ten seconds in, I am already getting beachballs. That being said, this is kinda cool when it works.
