Vimeo is a pain though. It does not work well without Flash, as does YouTube. player.vimeo.com/config/12345678.smil will give some mp4 url's but they require the request to come from their swf or some other annoying impediment. Not everyone always has a super fast connection or uses Flash all the time. With YouTube that's not a problem. With Vimeo, it is.
