Vimeo plans to launch a mobile player that can play content from the video-sharing site on smartphones that support Adobe Flash, as well as Apple's iPhone and iPad, which leverage HTML 5 for video playback.

Vimeo said it would release the Universal Player Tuesday. The site delivers support for either Flash or HTML 5 by detecting during the download the capabilities of the phone's browser and then using that information to determine the appropriate version of the player. Flash is supported on phones based on Google's Android operating system.
