RipCode transcodes Flash to iPad-friendly video formats

Ripcode TransActRipCode’s TransAct Transcoder V6 intercepts Adobe Flash-based file or live video requests and convert them to a format that can be played on an Apple iPad.

This is transparent to you, the iPad user. Unfortunately, this is not a piece of software that you can get just download for your iPad, but rather a serious piece of software and/or server appliance for large providers.

But now that you know, you can demand that your favorite video sites get a RipCode device to convert their material on the fly.

This is particularly important given Steve Jobs’ obvious objection to Flash on the iPhone/iPad.
