Mobile GTV Video Player
Also, georgiadogs.com, in conjunction with CBSSports.com, yesterday rolled out the first version of an HTML5 video player within GTV that will allow you to view GTV on-demand content on your iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, and iTouch). We plan on this being available on "embedded" stories, and live game broadcasts soon.
Fans won't have to do anything different to access on-demand video. Our site will determine if the user is browsing georgiadogs.com on an iOS device and present the HTML5 player accordingly.
