Well with html5 flash maybe a thing of the past, who knows youtube has already started to support it as an alternative to adobe's flash.
HTML5 video embedding is not meant to support flash, only ogv or mp4, I think..

As for youtube, there's already a HTML 5 beta version available: [Register or Login to view links]

I think it would be interesting to watch it on an episode of "Will it blend?" What saddens me is I know a bunch of die-hard mac fans who swear to death by this thing, and it's "1337" capabilities for doing absolutely nothing. I would be willing to buy it, if my girlfriend had a serious case of PMS that needed a hoover dam to stop it. Seeing as that's not happening, I think Maxipads will keep controlling this market
