    Yes but only through apps. Apple has no flash support so if there is a website that does not have an IPad app, then you cannot view the video

In addition, many sites will provide direct access to h264 video streams which MobileSafari's QuickTime plugin can handle no problem (just a week or two ago was watching the D8 conference videos on an iPhone).
