Apple and its chairman, Steve Jobs, have famously spurned the multimedia platform on its devices, arguing that Flash is too closed. But now, the media server will let Flash content be exported to the open source HTML Dynamic or Live Streaming.

The decision means that iOS users will be able to watch Flash videos on their iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches, though TUAW reports that it won’t work with Flash animations, interactive content or games. So, while it’s not the full Flash experience, the change should open up more video viewing options for Mac fans.
