The porn industry is supporting html5 video so flash is already dying. I'm not against flash as a vector animation plugin. It's great in that role, but as a video player it's a complete pile of absolute crap.
Not that I would look, but exactly which site is that?
The thing that is REALLY disturbing about "flash video" is that you ***DON'T NEED FLASH OR HTML5*** to embed a video in a web page!
Just throw it in an < embed src = "path/to/video" > tag
** it'll either launch it into a media player, or if you have a media player plugin (like mplayerplug-in), it'll load it right into the browser.
This has worked since about firefox 1.0... or maybe even before that.
<EMBED ...> is not a part of the HTML 4 or xHTML 1 specifications, but it is still widely supported by modern browsers. Unlike other tags, the attributes used by <EMBED ...> depend on the type of plugin being used (this odd free-attribute concept is why <EMBED ...> has been rejected by the HTML standards makers).
