To give you an artists point of view... this move by Adobe is being praised
by a number of videobloggers. A number of them are only encoding to
H.264currently. They see Flash's ability to play
H.264 video as a good things since (from their point-of-view)... because it
means that people can watch their video blogs without having to download any
plugins -- without having to download the QuickTime plugin.
Now... a videoblogger only has to throw up a Flash player to get their
H.264videos to play on the web (for people who don't have QuickTime).
This makes a strong case for Cortado <http://www.flumotion.net/cortado/>.
The Java applet that plays Ogg Theora video.
(BTW... Cortado is being added to vPIP -- http://vpip.org/ -- a popular
Wordpress plugin for adding video support.)
