I doubt you can change the already existing games to HTML5, although there is no reason why Adobe couldn't build something like that.

There aren't any plans to drop support for SWF uploads, down the road we could convert the best animations to 4K resolution thanks to the vector source art. I would like to see people upload MP4 versions of their stuff, though, so that it can be available on all platforms. People may also want to default to the video version since it streams, has a scrubber and can run better on computers that don't process SWF well. I think more people will want to default to a video version as we add more options, such as pre-roll videos and promo links at the end of the videos.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Newgrounds doesn't stop moving forward with cool ideas and genuine innovation, and these last two months were a very critical example. Although don't own an apple device, I must say I'm glad for the motto "the problem of the future, today!" Well, at least the future part. Keep moving forward, Ng!

I just watched a flash movie on my iphone - this is awesome!!

Is there a reason it played twice, back-to-back?

1) One click now takes you directly to the content, instead of first showing you the rollover info.

2) The video will actually play! This won't be 100% perfect every day; it is based on having a video alternative for the movie. The goal is to always have one.

is this what's causing movies to autoplay on chrome, despite having every single autoplay option turned off?
