I would like to use my site as a "gateway" for watching flash-videos in HTMl5.. Is this possible? What are the requirements?

First requirement: make sure you are not violating the terms of service for those sites. – John Conde Nov 9 '10 at 0:05

There's an app that already does this called skyfire.

For example, on the iPhone, pulls out requests to flash video files and converts them server-side into HTML5 and re-embeds them into the page.

I haven't tried it, as its reviews are a bit rubbish at the moment (supposedly only works on certain websites), but its a proof of concept that it can be done.
