As Apple itself doesn’t support WebM, people who want to watch WebM videos on iPhone in Safari always meet WebM iPhone playback problems. This article introduces two methods on how to play WebM on iPhone to help you get rid of the troubles. One option is using a third-party player and the other is downloading & converting the WebM videos with the good WebM converter:

Apple already has great H264 implementations and hardware support. However, when the royalty-free alternative to H.264 standard – WebM is widely adopted by Google, Firefox, Internet Explorer as well as the well-known video sharing sites like YouTube, Apple doesn’t take any action. WebM is used for high quality and less bandwidth consuming videos. Personally I think that’s why more and more people including Apple users prefer WebM videos. Yet when you view WebM videos on iPhone in Safari web browser, you must meet the incompatibility issue. Don’t worry, this article introduces two great methods on how to watch WebM on iPhone.
