Is Youtube using HTTP Live Streaming?

I am looking into HTTP Live-streaming. Apple says it will only support large videos with the HTTP live-streaming protocol

I want to show a Youtube video in iOS, Is Youtube using HTTP live-streaming so that this is possible?

Answer

Actually we never know what kind of streaming YouTube is using. But Apple will not reject if you are showing an YouTube video in your Application.

We can show YouTube videos using iFrame in UIWebView. It seems lot of application doing the same.
