      That I agree with. But keep in mind that YouTube does bandwith offloading. When Michael would use WebM/Theora, he needs to have some external video stream provider. I bet that if you found a good one, we could get Michael to switch
      For non-Premium members all I care about is being able to embed Flash on the page so that the visitors go to the Phoronix page to see the video and while on that page then the Flash ads on that page can also load.

        Flash (the format, NOT the plug-in) has shitty support on Linux and from what I understand is not 100% documented. As someone else mentioned there are potentially patent issues as well. Why on earth promote the use of Flash (again, the format--not the plug-in) when there are three worthwhile alternatives--VP8, Theora and Dirac.

          When using the flash plug in there is no patent issues at all. It is a licensed solution, I don't like flash either but to imply that i there is no legal way of playing streaming h264 content is absurd.

            Also like it or not, flash is more or less a standard which can be found supported almost everywhere already pre-installed. I have nothing against providing other streams as well but the fact remains that a flash stream will be the solution with the greatest accessibility to all.
