It's a huge step for encoding videos in just one format for all browsers.

Even on youtube, 50% of the videos I try to see cannot be watched without flash.

"Videos with ads are not supported (they will play in the Flash player)". http://www.youtube.com/html5

You can watch those without Flash by faking your UA string (try e.g. iPad). Feature detection, Google?

For all browsers running on the same operating system i.e. Windows.
